Default Typical yield

What is the typical yield of hops bines?

I'm wondering how many I should have growing to keep me in hops for the amount I brew which is about 5 gallons/month.

I got roughly 60 oz dried from 13 plants. Here is my hop harvest log.

Depends what and where you grow. I got 1.5lbs of cascades from one plant and only .5lbs of nugget from another (although I probablly would have gotten more if I didn't dig it up and move it in the spring). My first year hallertau did not produce much, but it is 2 year younger and the only one in a pot.

BBBF,

OK. So between 8 oz and 24 oz. per plant. Was that wet or dried?

I have eight mature plant in my yard and would have to agree with the others: it really depends on the variety and growing conditions.

Last year, each plant produced from 0.5lbs (sterling) to 3lbs (chinook) dried. The total for 8 plants was a respectable 15lbs. However - consider that I live in the Willamette valley - just about the perfect environment for hops.

Definitely dry weight, which is ~20% of wet.

fwiw, my Chinooks put out over two pounds dry apiece in their second season, so I would put the range between .5 and 2 pounds per crown...

Cheers!

Brian 2 can
I see in your table you have Cascade 1 and Cascade 2. I take it that means two separate plants of same variety. However you have Cascade listed a number of other times in the table. Are these 3rd and 4th plants or are you returning to the same two and harvesting more?

I see the confusion. But it was 2 plants. 1 was a monster and I let it go and did not prune. I think I have some picks in my photos.

I harvest between the 2
