I have 4 plants. 2 brewers gold, a Willamette and a Cascade. The cascade was twisted off in a wind storm so it was pretty stunted.

clockwise from left thats cascade (.20lb), Willamette(.56lb), BG#2 (.76lb) and BG#1 (.97lb).

this one is BG#1, BG#2, Willamette, Cascade. Those are an average size selected for comparison. Its odd to me how different the brewers gold were from one another.

I really like the striping and shape the cones of the BG#2 have. here is a close up:

Now I gotta come up with a recipe.

I have about 8 plants in their 4th year and I didn't get half of what you got in the bowl on the left.

What's your secret? Oh, yeah, Pacific NW weather...
