Yes...that is what I mean....

I am getting closer to the end....I have 88 ounces of the 2009 crop in the freezer with only the Galena and Sunbeams to Harvest.  The Freezer on the top of my Beer Fridge is full, so the over flow will have to go into the food freezer.........
you mean "hop freezer number 2."  Cool

So I just got done drying my Cascade hops, but they still have a strong grassy smell to them.  Has anyone else noticed this?  Is it normal?

No, I have not noticed it.......but maybe you have a keen sense of smell.   I would not worry about it.....freeze them....

I think people are getting too caught up in what their hops should smell like right off the bine.
The "grassiness" doesn't carry over to the beer usually. I tossed some Willamettes last winter because I didn't dry them enough. Lesson learned. If you get your hops dried enough, the hop oil WILL come through. Don't stress on the "grassiness".

No, not moldy, just musty almost. I didn't dry them properly 'cause I was in a "rush" and sealed them and froze them but when I went to use them, they didn't smell right and they were pretty damp. My bad.
I did much better this year with them.

Is everyone finished with their Harvest?
I have Harvested 98 ounces as of today.
I still have some Sunbeams to Harvest, but the rest of my garden is done.  I left about 10 ounces of Galena on the Bine.  Between my harvest the the Super Galena (from Rob) still in my freezer, I don't need anymore Galena.  Anyone is welcome to come over and cut the bine down and take it home.  It still has 8 to 10 ounces of hops on it.

I am going to continue to harvest some Hops from my Father's garden.  He has a lot of Cascades left over.

How is everyone else doing.....cept Dale, I know how he did....(Jealous)!!!!

Still got a bunch of Nugget to harvest - we're down to picking the easy ones only now. 

Does anybody have any Centennial to trade?

I don't, but I was wondering if anyone actually has some planted?  I'd be interested in a few rhizomes in the spring if anyone has any they want to part with.

In dog beers, I've only had 1.

When in doubt, add more hops.

I have two Centennials.  They are second year hops, but didn't produce much this year.  They grew like crazy, but not many cones.  I'll let you know in the spring if I'll have any rhizomes.

I have a Centennial crown that I will dig up and split next spring. I may be able to give you some rhizomes.  Did not get a lot of hops from it this year  Cry (that's why I was hoping to trade for some), but I did not fertilize like I had in past years. I will not make that omission again.
 
I have Celebration, Bigfoot and an all Centennial amber ale on the brew list - I'm gonna' need another pound or so.  Probably should just buy some of the 2009 crop - they will probably be pretty cheap.

I still have to Harvest my SunBeams.....the ones on the porch that I use for shade.  They are huge and full of lupulin oil....

I want to experiment with them and see if they are a good Saaz substitute....
