Hop and ant harvest
So I just located the wild hops I had seen last year on a walk. It looks like I am a bit late on the harvest as they are not really wet. They smell really good though. The biggest issue is the little piss ants all over them. I plan to dehydrate them, but does anyone have advice on the ants?
The other questions are:
Is there a way to identify them?
Is there a way to determine the AAU?
thats more protein, just make a fire ant beer.
Find a local grower and see if he can identify, and as for the AUU.. its gonna cost you money to send to a lab. Just use it late in your boil.
Occasionally as I vac seal, I see a bug in the bag. I don't mention this to people that drink my beer.
That's all I do- or technically don't do.
