Size of hops on the bine

I’ve noticed that my goldings hops have a large variation in size. Any ideas why? Is it nutrition or environmental?

There doesn’t seem ti be a pattern were on the bine the largest are.

Cheers

Re: Keg type for a conversation

Thanks Kev,
Just what I am looking for. I didn’t know about the ownership. Something to bear in mind. Was going to give the triclamp idea a run and see if it was ok.

Keg type for a conversation

Re: Removeable elements

This is what I use with the 2.4w curly element. Dead easy to take apart and no leaks
Getting the shroud just made life much simpler to take the elements out fir a scrub
