Hops on YouTube

I have spent the last two days creating a two part video of harvesting hops on YouTube. Yesterday I filmed me picking cones and explaining my trellis system. After picking the hops, I then taped the weighing, drying, and packaging of them.


Here is a sample of what is available now on YouTube:

Both of the video's will be available through the following YouTube addresses.

It has been nice to finally finish harvesting the hops and due to the windy and dry weather, it has gone without a hitch. It appears that I will have harvested about 10 ounces of dried Cascades for the second harvest. I am hoping that the home brewers market will be an outlet for these.
