with a liv...
Posted in thread: How much / many dehydrated hops to use? on 06-14-2015 at 03:32 AM
Fresh picked today? Assuming they were harvested at the correct time and have the proper
chemistry, dry them down to somewhere between 1/4th and 1/5th the original weight and you

It was all right. Its fairly easy to tell Dr. Wright doesn't have a lot of experience. My only

drying was ...
Posted in thread: Selling hops question on 05-13-2015 at 09:58 PM
