My LHBS gets 2.75 / oz. At those prices and quantities, when i buy there it reminds me of my younger days buying bags in the back woods hah!

Maybe i'm lucky, I've bought a boat load of various stuff on ebay and never been disappointed.

I believe you are lucky, since I have not received my eBay order, I had to spend $18 for 4oz of hops this weekend at the LHBS, yep they charge $4.50/oz.

I am finding a lot of reasons to not support my local place and this one of them.

Also, it has now been over 2 weeks since I paid for the hops purchased on eBay and no sign of any on its way.

and another thought.... for hops, try some different online sources.
Freshops is 2 bucks an ounce, and thipping is not bad

Yeah, that is the place. I did ask them about bulk grain and said they sold 50lb bags of 2-row for $50. So if you consider shipping into the equation that is close to the same as order from B3 for our area.

Yeah, I need a few things first too.... like a grain mill. I asked for one for Christmas, but doubt I will get it, so I may be buying one next month. But I still don't know if I will go bulk because I don't have a good place to store it.

I think I might try ordering from midwest because their prices are pretty good when you buy 10lbs at a time.

Yep, I think I have given up all hope on getting my order from sunburst66, it is time to contact paypal. It has been a full month and no hops or response from seller. His percentage has gone down to 67% because of all this recent activity so it looks like others had the same problem.

Contact PayPal fast. After 45 days they will no longer act on a problem.

sunburst66 didn't send 1 of my 3 packs of hops. I tried to get PayPal to take care of it but too much time had elapsed. I'm now trying through my credit card.

Yeah, I started one up with Paypal. Looks like he is no longer an eBay member too.

I don't know what happened to this guy, but just fell off the face of the earth or what.
