In Burnaby B.C canada close to vancouver. I found some hops...lots i picked over 8lbs of them. basically I crammed as much as I could in my backpack. picked 2 evenings. drying them out right now.
anyone know the area, what they could be.
one thing I noticed, don't know if its ripeness or what, but the hops did smell a bit different form some plants to the next. a bit more citrus. over all about the same. (some plants i picked in burnaby where about .5 mile apart.
already made a wet hop beer with them.
picked at another location on the west side by the beach (20km). these were very good,made a red ale with them. different hops though, I almost think crystal.
these were some big ones i found
this vine actually broke the small dead tree it was growing on.
had so much i threw this log of compressed hops in the freezer so it wouldn't spoil. made beer with it. all of it about 4 or so oz if dry. maybe more it was well over a pound.
my apartment smells good right now. a lot of the hops shattered when I picked them. or in transport.
this is kinda how it was all growing. right in with the blackberries. tough work
