Looks like you'll be getting the "wet" kind. Every year my LHBS does the same thing, trying to get people to buy these. you'll be able to tell when they arrive because they will look very green and feel "wet" like fresh flowers. Normal whole hops tend to look like dried flowers. 16 pounds is still a lot, even if you divide that by 5 or 6 to account for the water. happy brewing.Slyko said:I have no fing clue. My LHBS was jumping up & down about these fresh hops just off the vine. I have no idea what they are, I guess they're just the blossoms picked off the vine. He's telling me to use them immediately cuz they're super FRESH! My beer is gonna be KICK ASS!
Now what about using the rind off fresh oranges????
I guess I'll have to brew a lot of beer with 16 lbs of hops!
