  • Posted in thread: Dried hops smell like tea... on 09-03-2015 at 03:28 AM
    I notice this about mine each year too, tea and brussel sprouts aromas as they dry. But, for
    what it's worth, these seem to go away as I reach dry-dry. I'm still not sure if it's a
    moisture thing or a...

    The mobile app is screwing with me, trying to upload those pictures here

    So, frustration ensues. I've been drying the centennial and cascade for 4 days now and the
    chinook for 3, I am still at 30% moisture across the board. I identified the problem
    immediately last night w...

    @Charlie there is some truth to that, 16 of us put in about 68 man hours into harvesting 62
    plants.Another writeup here:

    Running the oast outside, I didn't think about the bugs it would suck up. Luckily, last night I
    had empty trays on top which caught the critters. So I added some scrap screen to prevent that
    tonight.I...

    The oast was working great. Obviously the humidity goes up as the air is pushed down through
    the stack, so the tray closest to the fan dries quickest. I measured every tray, the ones at
    the top had lo...

    Finished the harvest today. Chinook were easy to pick, collected 31.8lbs in 3 hours with a
    small crew, putting the total harvest at 77.3lbs

    @williamI had minimal expectations given the first year status of most the plants, so the
    answer is "exceeds." But it's giving me a good idea of what to expect next year.Which process
    are we discussin...

    We harvested about 45.5 lbs (wet) of hops today. There are probably another 20-30lbs of
    chinooks still hanging. I loaded up the "oast." Each 2x2 screen was loaded with 1Kg of a
    particular type, this t...

    Around the lunch hour I traded out many friends and replaced them with a handful of family
    members. We knocked down half of the cascades before serving up lunch. Cascades were numerous
    and tedious in ...
