HopTime Harvest Ale is brewed with 100% "wet" hops grown at a nearby hop farm. Normally, we add from 1 pound to 4 pounds of hops per barrel (31 gallons) of beer. With HopTime we add 8 pounds of freshly picked "wet" hops to each barrel of beer. The exceptional hop aroma and flavor is attributed to the fact that "wet" hops are added to the kettle just hours after being harvested. Distinctive aromatics and flavors from "wet" hops differ from those found in dried hops because the volatile oils in "wet" hops are exactly as they were when hanging on the vine. The difference between conventional dried hops and wet hops is sort of like the difference between cooking with freshly picked basil or dried basil. Both are great, but, they are much different.
