Back to the Hop Garden
Back to the Homebrew Main Page.
Here is the trellis with the cascade and nugget plants looking fat and happy.
First we lower the boom, to get the cones down to human level.
Then it's a simple matter to unwind the vines from the stringers.
Then we collect up the chopped vines in a big plastic bag.
These will make good beer.
So will these.
I can almost taste it now.
Now, where's my knife?
After the cone-bearing vines have been chopped off, haul the rest back up.
The remaining stems will send juices back down into the rhizomes for next year.
Enough for a whole year of brewing.
