    Thanks again, guys. I hope the video helps. I have about a lb of cascade hops I need to harvest
    but I can't seem to find the time to harvest them! :(

  • Posted in thread: what do your dried bagged hops look like? on 09-10-2008 at 09:53 PM
    I have been laying down wax paper under the screens, when I process my hops, to collect all the
    Lupulin that falls through. Prior to vacuum sealing the bags, I dump the pollen in. Prolly a
    wasted effo...

  • Posted in thread: Anyone ever do 15 gallon batches? on 09-04-2008 at 08:18 PM
    I do 12 gallon batches but boil 13 gallons in a keggle. That's as close to 15 as I can get. It
    works well, too. I'd say do it.

    You're welcome guys. When I noticed that there really weren't any videos on the internet on how
    to harvest hops I figured I'd throw one up. I'm glad it's helping out. I think a lot of people
    harvest t...

    This may sound like a really dumb question, but are you sure those are cascade hops? I only ask
    because I've never seen cascade hops flare out on the edges like that. Mine are nice and
    compact looking...

    No, I'm pretty sure it was benign and not malignant. In either case, hops are poisonous to
    dogs, so keep them away. I'll do a little more research, though.

Dig the hop harvesting video. Very nicely done and extremely informative for how short it is. I like it alot.

Oh yeah, I think it will do the trick. You should do some more and go even more in depth about drying and storing perhaps. I'm a noob to hops, still unsuccessful after my third attempt of growing. This year I had a great plant and it got flooded out. :(
