Hey all,
I know there has been a lot of questions asked about how to dry hops, so I thought I would put together a little picture tutorial on how I do it. This is about the cheapest way I have seen it done and requires no specialty equipment or tools.

Everything need to do the job.

This is the scale I bought and use for all my measurements, but any scale will work. This one cost me about $40.00 and is great!

All layers complete, notice the hop weight written down in the corner. This will allow you to figure the wet weight from dry weight.

Use blue painters tape to tape everything together, this allows you to reuse the filters quite a few times!

Weigh the finished product so you can monitor the weight as it dries.
