The 3 or 4 strongest looking ones. They really take off and grow noticeably longer everyday. Once they get a certain length, about 10ft in my experience, they start putting out sidearms(where majority of the cones will grow) that get a few feet long. So just make sure to leave some space for that. Looks like you might get a small late harvest if they grow quick enough.

This is what I have so far... Looks like the entire harvest will come out to the whole gallon bag full, hopefully more. Being my first year growing/harvesting hops I was a little iffy on when a cone was prime and ready to pick, resulting in some over mature cones. But I'm pretty sure I got it down now.

Not yet. I picked about an oz a few days ago, haven't weighed the rest of what I picked yesterday and this morning yet.

KeyWest, wondering how this turned out and how much yield you got? Brewed with them yet?

I see these crowns for sale on EBay for $9 from Great Lakes and I'm extremely tempted but then I realize it'd be stupid to buy them in the fall. Must.. wait.. till.. spring.

Awesome thread though!

Thanks!!! I'm actually going to weigh everything out tomorrow when my most recent cones are dry. Minus a few cones, I've harvested everything. Giving me an entire gallon bag full. I haven't used any yet but I'm planning on it over the next month or so.

Nice! Nice amount to dryhop! Mine was more, but quality is low. They were picked too early. Any recipes for a grassy cascade beer? Maybe a wheat backbone@
