Picked about 6 lbs of hops today. Which is about 18 oz when they’re dried. Got two paper bags about 3/4 of the way full. It took all day between everyday life things and brewing. I was still picking during whirlpool. I have about 4 lbs in the dehydrator and my basement now looks like this:

I did look back through this thread but not sure which strain of hops you are harvesting here? Looks like you started out with two strains at one point.

Creeps, I couldn't help but laugh when I heard your uncensored choice of words. As for the Japanese beetles you can eliminate them by treating your yard to control the grubs earlier in the spring. Haven't had the problem in nearly 20 years since I nuked them. Having sacrificial plants is also a good way to control them if you keep those plants far enough away from the hops. A rose bush or two will attract those little ba$tard$ like manure attracts flies. The rose bushes can be sprayed with natural insecticides to wipe them out. 

Great information about the red coloration of the bines. I'll need to keep that in mind next year.
