a potter, I started with 2 cascades, 2 willamettes, 1 mt. hood, and 1 centennial. It has workd out well, not only for hops, but I also have a nice place to sit in the shade. I used to brew out there when doing smaller quantities.
Did you stack the tiers or just do it as you have pictured? I will be picking a lot of cones this year so it would be slow-going if I had to do it one batch at a time.it was my first time using it for this purpose myself. I picked at the right time, at least I think I did. Weighed the whole lot, it was about 13oz. I left quite a bit on the bine that didn't look ready.
I weighed a sample cone which was 1.5g and then put it in at 110F and after about 2.5-3 hours it was down to .6-.7g
I spread them out between about 6 sheets and the way mine works is the heater and fan is in the top unit. It is a digital thermostat unit which is niceDid you stack the tiers or just do it as you have pictured?

It would still be better than I did last year...
Was that for 5 or 10 gallons?Wet hopped. Just picked them and hopped. 1 pound at 15 minutes and 1 pound at 5. I used an ounce of Citra pellets for bittering.
