I would like to use a food dryer to dry 1 lb of Cascade Hops. Any info on the time needed? Will 1 lb wet yield 3 oz dry ?? Thanks
I’ve found that its roughly 3 to 1. So if you have a pound of wet hops and dry them, you might be left with 3 or 4 ozs. It’s is rough guestimation, where a lot of variables can be involved.
It’s really hard to give you an exact time, you have to check their progress on a regular basis.
For me, it’s closer to 4-5:1.
I use a food dryer and over the years have experimented with different times and temps. i’m going to try about 120F this year and start checking them after 3-4 hours.
