Hop Harvest

While doing the usual search on Craigslist for all things beer related I happened upon someone looking to get rid of some cascade hops. A couple emails and a phone call later I ended up in Pownal, ME getting about 3 lbs worth of hops. After dragging the whole bine(yes bine not vine) home I spent about an hour picking them off. They were slightly passed their prime but I still got plenty of nice cones to brew a wet hop, all cascade IPA immediately after harvest. Used 2lbs in the boil and have another lb drying which I will dry hop with this weekend once fermentation is complete. More on the whole brewing process later, but for now, pure unadulterated hop porn........
