My Saaz vines went nuts this year. I’ve picked all I can. My friends have picked all they can. There’s still more than a year’s supply of saaz on the vine.

Labor Day weekend looks to be the last days of viable flower before they start to decline. I’m in Mount Prospect, if you need fresh hops, send me a PM. Pick all you want, maybe for a sixxer of your home brew. Will provide a ladder.

A friend of mine does this in Michigan every year for his extras, which is what gave me the idea.

Well, if you’ve still got friends in Chicago, let them know. I just picked another (third) pound of flowers and didn’t make a dent.
