I wouldn't use pellets. I'd go with cones.

Good point...I have some cones that my sister-in-law gave me that have been in the freezer for about 2-3 months. I have no idea what they are, but I think they're more of a noble hop than a big in-your-face hop. Think I should just load a bunch of them into the jar anyway? Can't hurt, right?

I'd give it a try. That's the fun of experimenting.

Got the stuff to try this tonight. I'm going to use a ruination clone I have. I'll let y'all know in a week or so!

I'm drinking Alchemy Hour Double IPA by Great Lakes. It would make an awesome pickle. In fact it's a little sweet, so I bet with some sugar, it would be a good beer for an IPA sweet pickle.

Made these a week ago with SNPA and ~3 homegrown cascade hop cones per jar.

Spicy, tangy, hoppy.....I like it!!

Made four jars. The brine I made only filled two though, oh well, just made another batch up real quick. Processing them now. Look an smell pretty good.

Made 3 jars tonight with Full Pint Brewery Chinookie IPA (Pittsburgh, PA). Also made a jar with hard boiled eggs instead of pickles(ran out of cukes, but already measured out my spices and garlic into the jar...didn't want to waste it). Boiled up a sliced onion in the beer/vinegar/salt mixture. I hope they turn out good.

I boiled my cans in my pressure cooker with no weight for 10 min. Will instill need to refrigerate them or are they ok in my pantry?

So I tried these last night, decent taste but they were soft and not crisp at all. Kinda disappointed in this. Any suggestions?
