Picked the Red Earth today while boiling a brew. No I didn't throw them in its a strictly brewed German Ale that's boiling.
Red Earth 600g Wet. Not even photo worthy because I didn't get any red cones. They were only red in early stage.
Its a first year in a pot but still good for sampling this breed.
The aroma is interesting. There's a pungency new to me. Its difficult to describe it seems a kinda exotic culinary mix with a hint of Garlic in the background? with that usual floral, spicy Dankness of any fresh hop etc. They smell great as any fresh hops do but with a flavour I cant rely describe and when I read descriptions of hop character I often frown with confusion ha...
Hallertauer and Cascade remains to be harvested.
edit: I now want to have a (dust catch) under a layer of drying hops after seeing yellow dust on the concrete gone to waste.
Its surprizing how much yellow Lupulin falls out!!!
