Harvest is underway in homebrewer gardens in the Umpqua Valley, and in the commercial hopyards of Oregon, Washington, and Idaho.
The harvested hops are spread out over screened frames for drying. During this August heat wave, the wait won't be long for them to be ready for weighing in one or two ounce portions, then put into plastic bags,vacuum sealed, and refrigerated until pitched in the brew kettle.
