Wizard or not, he still supported what I thought was just logical sense so I went back and added the link.

Well I did dry them as I wasn't ready to put a batch on just yet and didn't want to store them that long. The weight difference is huge out of about 6 oz I got about 2+ oz dried. Wish I had had a beer ready for dry hopping but alas not to be. MPW

I have some hop vines in my garden. This year I harvested about a pound of mixed hops. I dried mine on the back deck on a screen tray so air can circulate. They should not contain that much moisture when you pick them. The leaves on the buds should be a touch dry and crinkly. I let mine sit one day out in the sun and then put them in a ziplock and into the freezer. It seems to work pretty well for me. A buddy does it pretty much the same way with good results.
