Several years ago I grew some Cascade and Fuggles. I simply laid them out on a towel and placed them in the attic... hot and dry... for 24 hours. After that I just put them in baggies and squeezed the air out. Works well for short storage.

Thanks for your suggestions. I'll keep you all posted. I actually know of one location where there are an abundance of hops, and I have heard of at least one other potential location (haven't yet found it).

I can't wait to see those little cones. Pictures will be forthcoming.

I have a book on building your own brew equipment, and it discusses making a food dryer, but looking it over, it looks like a good way to electrocute myself.

I'll stick to getting something commercial, or as many of you have suggested, drying them in a more primitive manner.

I got my leads from other brewers in the area. Most often, I've found other homebrewers are more than willing to share in the stash, especially since you can cut some rhizomes if you really want to.

Any suggestions on a first time brew with these once harvest and processing is complete?

I was thinking on a single hop pale ale, but I'm open to ideas.
