I dried my hops in the dehydrator at 95 degrees for 8-9 hours. Seemed to work good.

Next time try 125-135

I saw you mentioned that earlier. I have never heard that. Everything I read said 95 degrees. Interesting

I learned that by going to hop harvest the last 10 years and observing what the growers do. I decided that if it's good enough for the hop producers, I should try it. They're right! Imagine that....
