Questions, answer as you wish....
1. Do you brew with them fresh or dried?
2. How are they weighed out if fresh....oz. for oz.?
3. If dried, oz. for oz. whole, ground? I normally use pellets.
3. Food dehydrator ok for drying?

I may be putting the cart before the horse but oh well it won't be the first time

Not a hops grower (yet?) but I can say you'll have a time drying even a dry pound of hops in a food dehydrator.

I know of a good rig used for drying mushrooms that I was thinking I might try for this when the time comes:

Take a stack of home air filters (cheap kind), layering your mushrooms (hops) in between. Attach to a standard box fan, ideally with bungee cord. Run until "cracker dry", usually 1-2 days (mushrooms lose ~90% weight, hops guessing probably 2/3 that much? 3/4?).

I'm sure there are already threads here about drying hops, but that would be my preferred low-temp way to dry pounds of anything.

My Chinook are two feet tall already. The Cascade is still small, but there must be 100 shoots coming up from what had been 1 rhizome 3 or 4 years ago. They're everywhere. I may have to dig some of it up.
