I think Frank was referring to hops harvested, but not used in the boil or whirlpool, not saving those already used for dry hopping later. Those will be a mess and you wont know what they will bring to the table. If you harvest 3#, you could then use your 1.5#( that you dried while the beer was fermenting) during whirlpool and the other 1.5# to dry hop, at least if I understand his post correctly
Right, duh....Only had 1.5# of wet this year so they are all gone. I was kinda wondering about that....
Yeah, definitely don't ring out the hops you used in the boil for dry hops lol. I was referring to if you had more hops that you didn't use to just dry them and dry hop.
I'm not sure where you are at, but my crop was pretty much non-existent this year. We had no rain in NE Ohio from about mid June through July. The crazy thing is, my first season for my hops was my best season. It's not supposed to work that way. I'm sure there are several factors. Weather, of course, but I think I took care of them a little better that year too. Chinook is probably my best producer here.
