    When using the recipe builder does the term 'Fresh' imply that the hops are dried or wet; as in fresh from the vine? This is extremely important to note as the ratio for use is quite different.
    Thank you!

    Fresh by date me thinks old mate. You can't get more fresh than home grown but I think that's a limited hop addition :). Like ya brew,rig. RIMS hay? Whatever floats ya boat I say:D.

    Not 100% sure, but based on the other options, I'd say fresh = wet.
    The leaf/whole option would be the dry version, but still the whole hop cone

    The stats for fresh are the same as for whole cone hops, and it makes sense that fresh equals wet. Looks like a place holder for future development. I recently used some fresh hops so adjusted the quantities based on the percent water that I thought likely. The beer came out really well. Good luck with the volume calculations.
