Hops Harvest 2010Monday, September 13th, 2010
Anybody who grows their own hops should be watching the cones carefully and preparing for harvest. I pulled the trigger on the first part of my hops harvest today, September 13th 2010. I’ll do the rest of the vines this week.
If your cones are papery, spring back when squeezed, and showing brown on the tips then pick ’em!
What I use to dry my hops:
- Window screen
- Spare room to dry hops for a couple days, omg it smells great in there!
- Fan (optional)
- Vacuum sealer
- Space in freezer

This year wasn’t a great growing season in Oregon, only half the tomatoes are ripe. Bah… On the upside, I’ve still got plenty of hops!
