Default Hop Dryer

With it being harvest time am going to build a Hop dryer. Here is the stuff am going to use.

Got 4 rolls of weather sealer

Picked up 2 of these window screens sets they come a part so you get a total of 4 screens

Put the weather sealer around the screens

Then stack all four together

Am using two fans one pushing the other pulling

Going to put this dryer in my bathroom with a space heater to heat the room a little.

About the same thing I am doing, except I am only using 1 fan.

i just place mine in a closet on a screen. They dry in 2 days. I harvest mine as the cones ripen versus all at once. It probably helps the attic scuttlehole is in this closet which makes is roughly 80 degrees.
