So I did It! I cut Cascade, Fuggle, Magnum hops. I left my Nugget and Centennial and Newport up. The boys from 7 Bridges came up to the house to help the harvest. Took us 6 hrs to finish. I'll let the pictures roll.

These are the Cascade vines about 8 yr old.

This is part of a Cascade vine that grew about 17'.

7 Bridges boys Mike and Matt just after the vine drop!

Here is a shot of the final take on these 3 varieties. The 6.5 gal and the 5 gal buckets are the Cascade. total= 9.8 # wet. The small purp cooler is first year Magnum= 13 ounces wet. The 50 gott is full of Fuggle= 9# wet.

We stuck a handful of Cascade and a handful of Fuggle into a PA that was timely going into secondary.
Enjoy the pics, Gabe
