Operation Green Hop 2010, part III - picking.

07:00 - picking starts.

07:09 - glorious morning.

07:12 - the harvest line advancing.

45 kg of fresh, green East Kent Goldings - picked today, used today.

I'd have taken more photos but the pickers are shy and the farmer fierce.

Come on then Eddie, we're all agog - how did the brew go?

The brew was bang on Brian, I just haven't had much chance to tell or write about it. The place smelled like an oast house, I cried brewers' tears (which surprised me) and now the brew ferments. We're in stasis, awaiting the outcome....
