Does anyone have any good recipes for a fresh hop beer? I am harvesting my homegrown hops and am wondering if I should dehydrate or just use them. I have - Nugget, Cascade, Chinook, and Willamette. Thanks.

Check out my recipe in my profile. It's called toilet water ale I think. It was a wet hopped american amber that turned out great.

Use them in your regular recipes, about 6x by weight. IPAs really show off Fresh hops the best.

I've never heard that before. So if I'm using wet hops, I should use 6oz in place of 1oz? Does that go for any variety of hop?
