    When the hops are ripe they won't have that wet feeling. Much like any other plant, ripeness is
    not always uniform. Have you checked the top one's? You may have to harvest in stages. hope
    this helps, ...

    You may need to increase the size of the pots to accommodate a larger root system.

    @Day trippr. Did you use anything for insects this year? My Cascades were devastated by Winter
    moth caterpillars.

    Are they 1st year? Just before cone growth happens the plant usually produces sidearms.

    Is it only affecting the lower leaves?

  • Posted in thread: Hops is looking good. Can anyone identify? on 08-19-2015 at 08:58 PM
    I'd need to see some more pics but they don't look "American" to me. They look more like a
    European breed similar to EKG or Hallertauer. Any clues on aroma?

    When the hops fall are the stems still intact? Stems usually only break after the drying
    process occurs. Are there any other symptoms or stress the plant might be going through?

    so maybe adding must to the fermenter? If you choose an ale yeast, most ferment best in the
    16-20c range.
