Also, what are your sources for the information? are you facts based on personal experience/experimentation or did you get the info elsewhere. It's not that I'm trying to get academic here, but I'm always looking for good sources to read.

I did the same exact thing with the window screen on top of buckets...
Put it into the garage which is not insulated so temps got to around 90-100 easily at the end of August- beginning of Sept. about 3 days - 1 layer tossed every 12 hours got them pretty dry - not sure of the percentage as I didn't weigh pre or post drying but the results were acceptable...
Third year yielded pretty nice results ...
Have 2 Zeus, 2 cascade and 2 Northern Brewer...
pic with some pellet hops from local brew supply, dried home hops and wet hops as well ...

Default drying?

Planted a hallertau plant just the other day and it will be interesting next year if it comes through the winter alright
My hops plants are just coming up this year, so I'm doing some more reading and found this thread. I did essentially what you did (harvested and threw them in a ziploc bag and then in the freezer). I didn't dry them at all though. Certainly didn't get anything like a leafy aroma from the beer. The beer they went into was one of my most successful in terms of positive compliments.

You can see exactly what I've done on my blog if you wish:

If I were to dry hops in the basement with a fan, will it make my basement smell like hops? I don't mind the odor but others in my home are overly sensitive.

Are they going to be drinking any of your beer? If so, they should perhaps learn to love the smell I certainly do.

They like the final product but nothing to do with making it!
