Not that I was expecting to get more but...getting short changed? Not sure if that was worth the day or two less in delivery time since I won't be able to brew until this weekend and this was more of a backup for future brews...

you know I did get mine yesterday but I didn't take the time to break them down. I was fairly disappointed that they were shipped in only foodsaver bags though. I expected mylar, oxygen barrier bags. I will let you know when I break them down what my total amount is. Anyways, I was just glad to find them online! Consider sending them an email and telling them your story? maybe theyd send you an ounce!

cheers!

Could be, although it is usually pretty accurate and I measured it using pounds, then oz/pounds, then ounces, then grams just to make sure. I've never had a problem before, but it is pretty close to a full pound so I won't rule this out.

But it is so much more fun just to complain on a message board!

Good to hear you got them though! It is almost hard for me to complain at all since they shipped out immediately and I got them so quickly. I just wanted to see if others had the same experience and maybe the vendor needed to be notified ... not to complain bc the service was great but let them know there may be a flaw in their weighing or something.

Great service or not, you should get a pound if you order a pound. I'd complain and now will be weighing mine for sure.

Yeah definitely agree, the more I think about it the more I find it irritating. But let us know when you get yours and what the weight is so I can make sure it is not my scale that is throwing the weight off, if you don't mind.

that might have been your expectation/hope but to be fair, yakimavalley never promised - or even showed - mylar bags. have a look here: http://www.yakimavalleyhops.com/product_p/varietyimports.htm - they're clearly clear foodsaver bags.

yeah i am slightly irritated as well, broke down both my cluster and my amarillo and was 1 oz short on both (about 28-30 grams short). though, I also ordered from http://www.southernbrewingwinemaking.com/ (amarillo) and was short 1 oz there as well.

Mine was off about a half ounce. I will be emailing them in a few minutes.

Citra has started to become pretty widely available it seems; I've gotten quite a bit of it. My understanding is that acreage was larger for Citra than last year, although it seems like its been slow to be pelletized.

All my orders from Yakima Valley Hops were over in weight, my pound of Amarillo was 507oz! All the rest were around 480oz.

I'd say that 491 oz over what you bought was a helluva generous overage....... I would assume you meant grams.
