Hops. So many hops…

For a 20L batch of beer you need about 20g of hops. So we’ll be sorted now!


If we make a batch every couple of month, that lot will do us until next yera’s harvest.

Problem is… we’ve still got this many left!


Took an hour to cut these buggers down from the fence. Then another hour to strip off the hops to fill the bucket.

Next year: grow them up twine so they don’t get stuck in the fence, and also should be possible to keep them separate. This year’s batch is just going to be ‘year 1 mix of hops’.
