It seems like our growing season came early this year. Last year I harvested about mid sept. This year the cones came out earlier and they are starting to get papery. I'm seriously going to have to get a drying screen ready soon! Still need to renew my knowledge on exactly when is best time. I see just a bit of brown on the tips of some cones.

I'm not sure of the answer on whether to pick the brown hops. I think it is up to you. To me it is an aesthetic question. If you smell the brown hops, I think that you will find they smell the same as a green ones. Once you boil these, they will be brown anyway.

I'm guessing that the brown hops may be better to pick than the occasional immature hop that you will find on the bine.
