I'm getting ready for my harvest(6th year). Kinda getting stressed out about it with new floors being laid down and knowing that I have 24-ish dried pounds ahead of me to pick, this guy is gonna need a vacation after this season. I have one Chinook plant that yields me almost 6# dried every year

I didn't weigh mine prior to drying, but I've got 10 oz. Cascade, 4 oz. Centennial, and 2 oz. Columbus, dry weight.

First year on everything except the cascade. Didn't get anything off of the chinook or the nugget. Not bad at all considering the almost criminal level of neglect that I've shown toward them.

I'm very tempted to throw the whole lot into one massive ipa along with all of the hops that are left over in my freezer from the 2011 harvest.

My final results from 16 second year cascades, 10 first year chinook and 10 first year columbus was just over 35 gal. wet. This yielded 72 oz. cascade, 24 oz. columbus and 7 oz. chinook when dried and vac. sealed.

First year 'starts' report. In south central WI, with reported 'extreme drought' conditions (truth be told I watered them everyday)

Centennial - 1 hop cone
Nugget - Handful of hop cones (maybe 0.5 oz dried if I am lucky)
Cascade - 1lb. 10oz. wet harvested! Great haul from these babies, pictures below

I have almost finished harvesting my hops for the year. The big winner was my first year Columbus which produced 1 lb (wet) --> 4.75oz (dry)

2nd year Magnum: .25oz dry
2nd year Centennial: 1.3 oz dry
2nd year EKG: nothing...nada...zip

There is a patch of wild hop vines growing by my house. I pulled quite a haul yesterday. I didn't even make a dent in what was there. I think I'm going back tomorrow.

I harvested today as well! I didn't get the greatest production out of some of my plants because of crappy sandy/clay soil. The two that produced (Cascade/Cent - 3rd and 4th from left) Have good soil. I will be digging everything up and putting in some good quality soil this fall. I now realize how big a role the soil quality plays.


From left to right(age)
Mt. Hood(4)
Willamette (4)
Centennial (2)
Cascade (2)
Fuggles (1)
Goldings (1)
Cascade - offshoot planted from above this year as the rhizome i planted did not take. It even produced a tiny bit!!
Centennial (1)


The grower himself!








I haven't weighed it yet. I'll let it dry. Cascade right and cent left.

Here is what my hops looked like before the harvest:



This is the third day of the harvest. I haven't even picked 1/2 of these suckers so far.
