Part of my Cascade harvest from this year, I thought I'd share it with you guys. They're being dried out using the box fan method, then vacuum packed and frozen. I'll be home in a few months to add them to some delicious brew.

Primary: Bavarian-style hefeweizen

Secondary: Thunderstruck Pumpkin Ale, Bourbon Vanilla Porter

On Tap: Empty

Upcoming: Raspberry hefeweizen, experimentation with essential oils

I have a Cascade plant too and it is starting to grow cones. I'll be harvesting them later this month and drying, then going after the second batch from what I missed the first time.
