    Weigh them fresh, then try to get to ~20% of that weight. The time required will be dependent
    on the ambient humidity and whether they're just sitting there or you put a fan on them. It has
    taken arou...

    I realize this pic doesn't tell us much, but I feel obliged to post it any way. :)

    Definitely. Freezing wet hops will result in hop mush when you thaw them out to use.And the
    odds are high that your "Cluster" SWAG is spot on...Cheers!Thanks for the confirmation on the
    possible corre...

    Harvested some of these today - very spicy and aromatic. Clusters?I seem to recall that I
    should dry them out a bit before freezing for future use - yes, no, maybe???

    I have had good success digging and planting rhizomes in the Fall. I had a 1 yr old plant that
    just produced 2.2lbs. Thanks for the input. Once the vegetation dies off a bit I may go dig up
    some root ...

    ^^^ Thanks for the input. I guess there's no "easy" way to figure this out. The area was first
    settled in the 1700's and was last inhabited about 90 years ago when the mines shut down for
    good. So cer...

    Near a railroad, I wouldn't say so much planted but they used to fall off railcars and plant
    themselves.Ah, but that theory wouldn't hold up too well in this case. This was an 8-mile spur
    that dead-en...

    Chances are, if found near an old farmhouse or railroad they're probably cluster.Ironically
    enough, they're about 100 feet from the old rail line, and 20 feet from the last remaining
    miner's house. So...

    Well got out and harvested those hops. Unfortunately many were starting to brown, but I still
    got many that are green or slightly browning at the edges.Wow, how far north are you? I figured
    ideal harv...

    hop farming moved from Massachusetts to upstate NY in the late 1800's and the variety that was
    grown is Cluster.Any idea how far south into "upstate NY" the Cluster hops were grown? Reason I
    ask is th...
