My hops vine has been climbing the twine on its own now. It only took a couple of days to train the sucker. When I come home from work, I’ll check on it and I am amazed at the progress. I haven’t seen foot long (Five, Five dollar…) growth yet, but it’s still early in the season.
I’ll take some pictures to give a visual update.
I was wondering if other experienced hop growers knew how many hop cones you would need to get an ounce of hops.
I know there will be a difference in weight in fresh hops vs. dried hops, so I guess I am wondering how many hop cones do you need to produce one ounce of dried hops?
I am starting to formulate a harvest ale recipe.
