Default 1st Year Harvest and Fresh Hop Brewday!

First year harvest and had some decent producers. Ended up with some Cascade, centennial, Chinook, Columbus and Willamette.

Went for a 'C' hop pale ale, sort of mirror pond inspired I suppose. Should be kegging it on Sunday and it should be tasty!

U dry em or use em green? Hope u did not use green for the 60 min boil. will probably have a nasty grassy taste if you did. 30min->0 should be fantastic. hope it turnes out well. kinda sad i did not get to use any of my hops this year(all though they all went to a fellow hbt member). hope it turns out as good as it sounds.

Na I did fresh hops for the whole thing. Post boil gravity sample tasted really good! I used my centennials for bittering as they were left on the bine a bit longer perhaps and was starting to dry out.

The Willamette, first picture, reached the top which is probably sitting at 18ish feet. I'm excited for next year for a little more productive plants. I didn't fertilize this year and I think next year I'll make a better effort to fertilize and weed and all that good stuff.

Curious how this will turn out for you.

I made a fresh (but dried) hop IPA from hops given to me. It was a very hot and dry summer here in Nebraska, so I think that is part of my problem. Slightly too bitter (3/4oz @ 60min), and really grassy. Only 1oz dry hopped for 8 days. It was grassy before that...

BTW, my little sister lives in Corvallis. I really need to visit, but with a 17mo old and one on the way, it's tough.
