Cool video - thanks for posting it!

Question: is the "conditioning" shown at the end of the video something that happens before the drying or after?

Cheers!

conditioning happens after drying. We let them set after drying so the moisture between the strigs which hold more moisture rehydrate the bracks which we have to overdry

What I'd like to see is how you get the bines out of the field and into the magic picker thing. Is it all done by hand?

Glen, what's the target temp for your airflow into the oast and roughly how long does it take from start-to-finish for a given basket?

Loved the video, very cool! I guess since I bought my rhizomes from you, those are like the long lost relatives to my hops. I can see the resemblance!

OK, not really.

Thanks for sharing your process. Cool Video. Do you bag them? pelletize them or what?

Pretty sure I heard they bale their hops.

Mmmm....Just thinking about having a freakin' bale of hops sounds cool!
