1#5oz of cascades pulled from my garden today and on my dehydrater at 95F.

Any thoughts on how brown is too brown for hop cones? Mine are browning slightly to medium on the sunny side of the trellis.

It can be hard to balance "readiness" across a bine or number of bines. You do the best you can, and that batch looks fine.

Cheers! And congrats on your first crop!

Which dehydrator are you using and on what setting? My understanding was that it is pretty easy to get the cones too hot and bad things (can't remember off hand what those things are) will happen.

I can't really give any insight on your question, but that sure is a beautiful sight.

I'm curious on how that works, I have the same nesco by the looks of it. Just waiting for more property to start growing hops...
