Anyway, we got back the results of the hop cone analysis today and I wanted to let you know your results:
Cascades scored 6.2% alpha and 4.4% beta acid with an HSI of .189,
Nuggets got 9.3% alpha and 3.7% beta acid with an HSI of .229.
HSI stands for Hop Storage Index and varies on variety and age of the hop, but relates to the expected degradation of hop quality over time. The Nugget's alphas could be a tad higher but all-in-all, I think your numbers look pretty darn good all around - congrats!
Here are the latest soil reports we got in 2012
