Default are my hops okay???

Picked my hops today and I think I may have waited too long. They still have a nice aroma and strong taste. Some of them are very sunbaked and brown. Most are almost pure white with green on the petals. Are they going to work? Do I not dry them as long?

As long as they don't smell like onions or garlic. How does the lupin look like?

Lots of mine that were hidden behind my trellis came out white but still worked out fine for me. For drying I weigh a small amount and check daily until they lose about 2/3rds of their water weight, yours will probably be done a lot quicker than normal
