I'll be sure to let everyone know how it works out. I'm leaning towards the Rye IPA. Lately I've really been enjoying Terrapin's Rye IPA which is a local beer for me out of Athens, GA.

I picked the first round of Nuggets this weekend. I used the ziploc vacuum bags for the first time and I'm impressed. Easy to use, developed a nice tight seal and has held for the first few days.

Not just a photograph, but aroma and a picture would give someone with good hop knowledge a better chance at figuring it out. Post a picture of a mature cone anyway and see what you get.

I too, would be interested in the "freezing of the fresh hop" technique. I have first year Chinook and Centennial, but the cones are growing at different rates. So I am pretty sure some will be ready before others.
I want to make a fresh hop IPA, but don't know how to do it if all the hops aren't ready at the same time....
hmmmm???

Same exact problem. I figure try it and see. I'm only going to do a 5 gallon batch, so if it's awful, at least not too much wasted. Besides, the most expensive ingredient, the hops, are going to be free on this batch!
