So my hops are looking ready for harvest, and as with all things brewing, everyone's got a different theory on the best/most cost-efficient method of drying them at home. Is there a comprehensive thread on the subject I'm missing in my searches, or can we get a discussion going?
I can start with my embarrassingly ineffective method from last year - laid them out in a cardboard box, cut holes in the side for air flow, and tied them to the window A/C unit in my house, rotating twice daily. Took about 5 days to dry, which doesn't seem very efficient, and lost a lot of lupulin to the box in agitation, but moreover, I think I've got far too many cones this year (2nd year of growth) to do all at once with this method anyway.
So what do you do?
