Check it out...took too long to build, with the heat half my hops dried out on the bine! They are about a month early. Will have some cascades. Each rack will hold about 2 oz (dried weight) of hops. About 1/3 of a five gallon bucket. Last year I didn't get my hops dried enough as I had no good method of weighing them. With this system I can weigh each rack before and after and am targeting 10-15% moisture. I put a space heater at the bottom for quicker drying. Had the heater on for a few hours and the fan ran overnight. I checked them this am and took over 10 oz. of water over night.
