Default Have you purchased your 2012 hop crop yet?

Hey guys,

Didn't see a thread like this yet, will absolutely contribute nothing to the forum besides maybe making a few new home brewers aware of the 2012 pellet crop season.

Just placed my order tonight with hops direct.

1# Chinook leaf
1# Centennial pellet
1# Cascade pellet
1# Columbus pellet
and 1# of Belma a new variety from Peterbaugh Farms (only $5 a lb!!)

Anyone else plan on ordering soon? OR already have?

They don't have any EKG listed yet. Need to check my inventory before I order any more hops. I still have almost a freezer full. Must brew more with more hops...

I ordered leaf hops a while ago, and have already brewed two batches with the 2012 amarillo leaf hops. I've used the simcoe, centennial, and northern brewer also I think. I haven't used any 2012 willamette yet.

I didn't see any pellet hops that I want, so this year I didn't purchase any from hopsdirect.

I've got 18lbs of hard to find pellets on the way to add to the 5lbs I have. I'll just add some of the less hard to find as I go this year.

Been short on money lately so I haven't had a chance to order yet. I'm hoping to snag some Amarillo, Citra, Simcoe, and Centennial if it's still available in a few weeks.

All leaf hops

2# US Goldings
2# Cascade
1# Magnum
1# Amarillo
1# Northern Brewer
1# Hallertau (US)

I make ESBs every 2nd or 3rd batch and have never used US Goldings before. I had read that the difference between US Goldings and EKG is not too big but it was a huge difference in my first ESB. It might just be that the EKG was old and the USG was used about two weeks after it was harvested. I hope so. The hop character was much more harsh with USG.
