Drying Cascade Hops.

My first attempt. Today I harvested 2oz. of cascade cones with the intention of brewing a half gallon of beer this weekend. We will see if this ends up being enough dry weight. I am leaving them on the floor of the oven above the pilot light as suggested by the guy at the homebrew store.

Dry they got down to a little less then an ounce. I put them in with a 1l extraction of maris otter.

unrelated note here is a crazy caterpillar that was attacking the hops
