Hops Direct just put up 2012 Crop
 
I just placed an order with hops direct, for

Cascade - $11.85 per pound
Belma - $5.25 per pound
Citra - $17.25 per pound
Amarillo - $18.00 per pound
Chinook - $15.55 per pound
Willamette - $9.90 per pound

The Amarillo, Citra, and Chinook went on sale about 5 minutes ago. Get them while you can

amarillo is sold out

Gear101 11-10-2012 12:09 AM

citra is too, what did they have five pounds to sell?

Brutus Brewer 11-10-2012 12:11 AM

the pellets? Already, wow.

Even limiting it to one pound per customer, the amarillo and citra went FAST, and the website says something like "only 600 pounds left" of centennial!

If I remember there was like 150 pounds of Citra and maybe 175 pounds of Amarillo. I emailed them and was told they would release them between 7 and 8 eastern, and it was 7:50 give or take when they went online. I had the site up since 7.

This is absurd, I was trolling their site all day today at work waiting for them to go on sale. Then I learned that they would go on sale at 5pst. I stopped for some bombers at the beer store on the way home from work thinking that 15 min wouldnt be a big deal....boy was I wrong. They must have sold out in like 20 minutes

I think all the big breweries are getting as much of those two hops they can.

maybe just to try new beers for thier tab rooms.

yeah I'm still rather bitter and upset; I saw them as soon as they went up on the site and had them in my cart but was debating about purchasing another type of hop. Before I could complete the purchase they were sold out. :(

I ordered all my rare hops from label peelers last month but grabbed a few pounds of Belma from Hops Direct. At $5.25 a pound I'll try it out in a few beers.
