Nunzino Pizza, founder of Hop Head Farms, will introduce a practical guide to the examination of hops. Attendees will participate in a hands-on hop selection method more geared to cider makers. Learn how to determine if a hop is true to type, how to know when you have bad hops, best storage practices, and what to expect (aroma- and taste-wise) from the hops you select.
