Bobby,

You are a genius! I set up a trellis like you outlined in your video. I just harvested my hops with great ease. I simply loosened the tension on the top line until it lowered to withing safe reach from a ladder. Worked perfectly.

Thanks for all you do.

Rick

Cool, glad it worked well. I've lowered mine 4 times already since there's a huge delay between harvest times.The cones way up top are always ready early for me. I have enough line coming down from the horizontals that I can lower it all the way to the ground and still be able to pull it back tight. I added some awesome rope tensioning doohickies this year that I found by the rope in Lowes. I can't find a picture online to show you.

I am planning on replacing the eyebolts with pulleys next year. I found it a bit tough to re-tension the trellis with the load on the top line. There was a scary-huge bow in the upright until I gave the bines some manual lift. I think the pulley will do the trick. P.S. The hops did so good this first year that I am planning on doubling my hop yard next year!

P.S. check out this bad boy! http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f92/hows-nugget-194642/#post2262015
