Harvested my First Gold today, always less fun that sounds!
Nice! What beers do you have planned for them, if any yet?
I just used them in a brew where I got about 18 litres after the hops had absorbed about 8 litres! Used 3.2kg of them at 80c for a steep for about half an hour

Well, although the First Gold, Northdown, Fuggles, Styrian Golding and Santiam came in a good 2 weeks ago, I only managed to harvest the Cascade Tuesday and last night. Fairly sure they were actually the 1st in last year but I had to move my hops to a different (dedicated) part of the garden this Spring so effectively they are all 1st year growths.

Looks like the final dried total will be around 3.5kg so not complaining. Next year, weather permitting, should be a belter

Harvested mine last month a bit early but within 12hrs lost half my crop to a sudden caterpillar invasion. After drying not even 100g whole leaf from 3 plants.
My wife wanted me to get a hobby now I make beer. She says I'm always in my shed I KEEP TELLING HER IT WAS HER IDEA.
