Picked my hops today and I think I may have waited too long. They still have a nice aroma and strong taste. Some of them are very sunbaked and brown. Most are almost pure white with green on the petals. Are they going to work? Do I not dry them as long?

Lots of mine that were hidden behind my trellis came out white but still worked out fine for me. For drying I weigh a small amount and check daily until they lose about 2/3rds of their water weight, yours will probably be done a lot quicker than normal
