Default Shipping costs from hops direct

I need to get a # of centennial so I can do the Pliny the Elder Clone. My hops guy did not have any...sigh. I noticed on their web site that shipping is not calculated until the order is processed. Does any one have experience with getting hops from them and what your shipping was. If you are from the Rocky Mtn region please chime in. I would just hate to spend $10 to ship a pound of hops.

TIA
Zman

I'd guess that $10 sounds about right, IME.

Now is a great time to stock up on hops!

I am getting pretty good deals from a local guy that sells on ebay. It is just hard to justify $10 shipping on a $20 order.

Email them with how many pounds you plan on ordering. Thats what I did and they gave me an exact price.

Default Shipping costs from Hops Direct

I just purchased 6# of hops from HD. 6# was $10.74, 5# was $9.90 and I think she said 1 # was about $8. That first few #s are killer. After that, it is pretty reasonable. I was only going to order 5# originally, but I figured one more # for $.80 was a good idea. I can't wait until the 21rst when they arrive.

the lbs are also heavy, more so in whole hops than pellets. Its definetly worth it to pick up a couple extra lbs though than to just buy 1

Yeah, one pound to Salt Lake City was about $7.80 and two pounds was a little over $8. The way I look at it was buy two pounds and get the second one for half price. By the way, their hops are great. Much fresher I thought than the stuff at the LBS. Opening that bag and taking a big whiff was like hitting the bong in the old days. It was overwhelming!

For a lb shipped to Michigan it was about 8.50... I was bummed it was so much as well. You could probably get a few pounds shipped for that price, but I saved about 20bux buying locally, so it was a no brainer.

Next year I'll be buying everything at once early, and then just freeze them for the year. That's the plan anyway.

Pick up the phone and call them... the girls that work the phones are great, they will have you an actual shipping price in 60 seconds.

The more you buy, the lower the shipping cost per pound.
