I had weighed 3 cones a couple weeks ago and based on that i had figured if all cones were the same weight it would take 255 cones to make a pound. then i realised the futility ogf this due to differences in size and lupilin content/weight.
Ditto. Chinook is maybe two and half times the size of fuggle. There is no standard size for hops. Factor in season varibles and the health of an individual plants there is no way to give a flat blanket answer.
I have been told that hops are about 80% water weight that is lost during drying. I am not sure how accurate or applicable in all cases this is, but the only way to find out is to weigh some before and after drying!
