First Hop Harvest

The Cascade hops I planted in the backyard haven’t done much since 2015. There were a handful of cones each year, but it wasn’t until this year that there were enough to harvest.

I collected 3.3 ounces of hops. They smelled amazing. Sweet and delicious.

But how to best use them? I decided to use them as a late add to a one gallon lager beer kit I had.

My track record with beer brewing is not the best. Out of the five or so kits I’ve made only about two have been drinkable. But I won’t get better unless I keep practicing.

Brew day went smoothly and the wort looks great. I’ll find out in a few weeks if it’s drinkable.
