Posted in thread: Best way to utilize whole fresh hops! on 09-19-2015 at 12:35 PM
Since they are like little sponges and make a freaking mess. Can I chop them up? What is the
best way to add these to your boil without sucking 50% of the liquid.

If I have whole hops in a boil it's OK to squeeze isn't it? Not the malt but the whole hop cone
??? You have 2 hours to reply LOL :-)

dried fresh hops would you suggest?

HA - the growers said they really did not know but they believed it did not change anything.So
- inquiring minds need confirmation! This was one vine - got just under 40 oz wet. Now

This will most certainly be a DIY job with no screens OR dehydrator. Maybe a few grain bags and
fans will do it if I keep rotating the bags.

HA - my very question - are hops like grapes. Do the acids diminish with rain and flourish with
sun and heat?

Lower temp the better I assume?
