Drying and conditioning of hops

The optimal drying and conditioning of hops not only serves to maintain quality, but also makes an important contribution to cost and energy savings on hop farms.

In order to bundle the knowledge for the hop growers, Jakob Münsterer from the Bavarian State Research Centre for Agriculture (LfL), Institute for Plant Production and Plant Breeding Working Group Hop Production and Production Technology has summarized his many years of research results and practical experience on 95 pages in the LfL information paper “Drying and Conditioning of Hops”.
