Well, I picked up a dehydrator in a garage sale, picked my hops yesterday and was going to dehydrate them tonight. Anyone have guidance regarding the temperature and how long I should leave them in the dehydrator? I was thinking 90-100 degrees for 5 hours, thoughts?

Was the dehydrator a permanent hop dehydrator after you got done (i.e. could never get the hop smell out of it)?

I soak my trays in Oxy-clean and hot water. Clean the base to get any lupulin off. That stuff really sticks. Made jerky about a weeks after I dried my hops, no problem.
