First hard frost

Well the first Hard Frost - all of 31 deg finally hit the hops yard, almost 5 weeks later than normal and not as hard as we typically see.

The bines are now resting and we need to do a clean up as a result, but i amazingly still have a few peppers growing as only their tops were singed by the frost.

I have a full 6 gallon bucket of peppers to turn into sauces and storage, will borrow a pressure canning pot tomorrow.

As the hops are over I will start to blog about the brews instead this year, so expect to see more about the brewery and beers in next few months.
