A traditional Kentish hop field in Horton Kirby. When harvested these will be used by the local brewery for the production of beer. Hops are usually dried in an oast house before they are used in the brewing process. Undried or “wet” hops are sometimes (since ca.1990) used. The wort (sugar-rich liquid produced from malt) is boiled with hops before it is cooled down and yeast is added, to start fermentation. #Kent #hops #beer #breweries

Our sunflowers aren’t quite so fine and upstanding after the deluge of rain and strong breezes of the past four days or so. #thenewforest #UKweather #sunflowers
