My first year growing, grew from a purchased crown and had 3 main bines each 15-20 feet in length. LOTS of growth! Planted late for North Dakota, late May. Things are nearing freezing now at night and I decided to harvest. Many of the cones were starting to brown and there is golden lupilin (looks like pollen) at the tops of the cones, but they are not huge. Most about 1 inch in length , some bigger some smaller. They smell good tho.
My question is, is there any reason I cannot use these hops for aroma, even if they were harvested young...which I am not sure about?
