Holy hops batman


My wife's co-worker came through for me and not only grew hops for me, but delivered them to her work! Can you imagine this bag if you where sitting next to him on the bus? These are partially dried and weighed about 12oz in total.  In all that is about $40 or $50 worth of hops I don't have to buy.

I bagged them up in these Ziploc Vacuum seal bags and tossed them in the freezer for use later. Once the air is sucked out they are good for about 6 months in the freezer. That entire bag is Cascade hops, and they tend to range in Alpha Acid content from 4.5% up to 8%.  I have no way of knowing what the AA% as far as I can tell, so I'm going to assume rather bottom of the chart 4.5 or 5%.
