I know that this may be a crazy question with too many variables but here goes anyways.

Given an average size hop cone of 1.5 inches, how many dryied cones make up 1 ounce?

I'm just guessing when I say about 150. Why would you need to know? Can't you just weigh them?

Someone else stated not that long ago that it was around 90 cones per oz. It was in a post from maybe a week ago, but wasn't the main topic.

I was just curious being a first year grower. I have been studying my plants and trying to figure out how cones I have on them and what that would translate in ounces. My cascade I have guessed them to have several hundred cones and still more that have not yet developed. My excitement continues to grow.
