First fresh hop brew of the season!
Seemed a tad early, but the Cascade vines looked pretty ripe. The hop picking is beautiful this year, and yesterday I did my first of 2 wet hop beers for 2011. Anyone else harvesting now-a-days?

BTW, Al, if you're reading this I bought a sack of Crisp PA malt at Corrados, I think there's about 18 pounds unaccounted for. And of course I have more hops than I can use. If you'd like you're welcome to the surplus.

Re: First fresh hop brew of the season!
Hey, so last trip to Bruges was a fast one, my trip to see the Russian Horror surfer band in Luxembourg allowed me a few hours. All to breif, but better than nothing. But the raw Belgianiness of that magnificent town really warmed me up to making a simpler Belgiany thing, in 2 weekends I plan to make that happen. I have a reasonable dose of Perle and could use just that, I think the Cascades are not obviously identifiable as Cascade when fresh, particularly when applied after the first week, so I could probably use those too. But all things equal I'd rather have an ounce of something low alpha and maybe noble to toss in.

Should you have a good hop stock could I convince you to trade an oz. of something for 18 lbs. of Crisp PA malt and all the Cascades you can pick?

I have a few oz. of Strisselspalt 2.9% - seems pretty fresh yet. Glacier is the only other I have right now.

I harvested a small crop of Magnum and Centennial a few weeks ago. I dried mine first, got 6oz. Last week I brewed an amber ale recipe using 2oz of the blend, we'll see how bitter it comes out. I figured the amber would work whether the hops were high AA or not. I did let them hang on the bines longer this year so I'm hoping they will have decent oils.

Re: First fresh hop brew of the season!
My first year Mt Hood and Zeus are almost ready. We've had a cool summer combined with being first year plants is making them go real slow. They're smelling nice so far.

Being first year and such a small amount, I'll probably just combine them all and toss them in at the end of an APA or something like that. Wet of course.
