Green Hops
Anyone got any advice on brewing with green hops (fresh), I have 4 first year Prima Donna dwarf hop plants (also known as First Gold).

RE: Green Hops
The general consensus is to use them within 24 hours of picking, or they begin to rot. The next typical advice is to use 6 to 8 times more wet hop than you would dried whole leaf hops. 

Cheers!

Tony !

Spot on, the wet hops is about 6-8 times more heavy, one note is wet hops can be very grassy, fresh cut grass aroma I would cut them with 50% with dry hops, unless you are going for a tongue splitting IPA.

Very helpful information thanks… So I have harvested and brewed an English bitter using the fresh hops at whirlpool.

4.25 kg Pale Malt
0.03 kg Black Malt  
25.00 g Styrian Golding - Boil 90.0 min
15.00 g East Kent Goldings (EKG) - Boil 90.0 min
20.00 g Styrian Golding - Boil 20.0 min  
30.00 g Styrian Golding - Boil 5.0 min  
140 g First Gold [wet hops] - Steep/Whirlpool 10.0 min  

Let you know what it’s like in a couple of weeks   Tongue

cracked open one of my green hop beers today …… very hoppy Tongue not very much like an English bitter, may need a little more time to mellow out.
