That pile is ONE magnum bine!



Tiffiny in Cascades The rows go back about 1/4 mile.


Loading bines into the processor



The hop dryer. For scale, check out the guy in the upper left corner of the bin.

Man, I want to jump into that vat and start making hop-angels. The aroma in that place must be overwhelming.

On the other hand, this is my harvest. Four vines second year. On the left, Willemette, Northern Brewer AND Cascades. Fuggles on the right. Looks like the Whole Harvest ale will be a Mild. More water next year!

Well, there's only 4 oz. wet of Fuggles and 4.5 oz. wet mixed, so I plan on drying them to get a better handle on how much I'm working with. Most of the guys at Hop Madness were using pounds of fresh hops! I picked today because we MIGHT get some rain. Also, my next brew session is on Michaelmas, (17 Sept). I was going to wait, I mean, we've gone 76 days without rain, what's another two weeks?
