Last Of The Hops


I’ve finally cut down the hop bines, and taken off the remaining hop flowers.

The majority of the flowers were taken off a couple of weeks ago to go straight into my green hop beer; this small collection was all that was left, but it’s still a much bigger crop than I had dared to expected when I planted the hop earlier this year.

It only took a couple of hours in a very low temperature oven (with the door open) to dry them out properly – they’re now all safely tucked away in the freezer waiting for me to decide what beer to brew with them!
