1#5oz of cascades pulled from my garden today and on my dehydrater at 95F.
Any thoughts on how brown is too brown for hop cones? Mine are browning slightly to medium on the sunny side of the trellis.
It can be hard to balance "readiness" across a bine or number of bines. You do the best you can, and that batch looks fine.
Cheers! And congrats on your first crop!
Which dehydrator are you using and on what setting? My understanding was that it is pretty easy to get the cones too hot and bad things (can't remember off hand what those things are) will happen.
I can't really give any insight on your question, but that sure is a beautiful sight.
Smelled great off the bine....now not so brite after 9+hours in dehydrater at 95F Lost 65% of weight during dehydrate. Going to bag and freeze and see how they do. Harvesting more tonight.
Keep us updated on how they turn out, I have a Nesco and am growing hops this year...
Same here, any issues with using the Nesco on 95?
