Hop Harvest

November 3, 2011


The 2011 hop harvest is done and the breweries have gotten their share, leaving the rest for the little guys. I just got my orders from hops direct and fresh hops. I still have quite a bit of high alpha hops from last year including calypso, bravo, and super galena, though I think I’ve done a good job of depleting the super galena after brewing the last single-hop IIPA. This latest order is a lot of flavor/aroma hops, American in variety, and still pretty high alpha. I got a pound each of:
Amarillo
Cascade
Centennial
Chinook
Citra
Simcoe
Willamette

Here is the unboxing if you’re interested in that sort of thing:
