I've had the EKG and Cascade. I think it is pretty good but it was more of a one-off novelty.

I've tried most of the flavors. We started carrying it at the LHBS I work at. I can't finish a piece. Some customers seem to like it. I'm also not a hophead in general. Give me some malted milk balls...

Thanks for trying and glad you liked it. It's kinda like Marmite, folks seem to either love it or hate it. That's one of the reasons I decided not to advertise in order to see if it's worth pursuing. After being around since late 2010, I'm finding myself with a lot less time to tend to my hops!

Hey, I didn't realize you were still around! Didn't know if you were still in business or not.

You actually inspired me to doing some experiments of my own. IPA Cotton Candy. NOT Cotton candy IPA.

I actually tested my theory with the last few of the box of candies you sent me all those years ago. I didn't show it in my original thread, but here's the pics of me making cotton candy with your candies.







You were the inspiration.

My buddy and I tried the cascade candy. We he loved it, I hated it, (but I do love cascade hops). Owner of the lhbs said they did some experiments using the candies as priming sugar. Haha

One cool thing about the candies is that, when I was getting used to the heart meds I'm on and the really low blood pressure from them, I would tend to get a little nausea and dizzy spells. The hop candies kinda helped, I noticed they have a nice calming affect on the stomach.

All of this. I must have all of this.

I just ran out of my sierra nevada hops flavored lip balm. My girlfriend thinks I have a problem... I think the real problem is she doesn't like the taste of hops, so it's kinda a smooch-deterrent

BHoppy, do you only use your own hops or do you buy others'? I feel like Simcoe candy would be probably the best thing to ever happen ever

And I didn't realize that YOU were still around! Glad you're still on the planet and using what God gave you to further the homebrewing community! I'm having a blast and folks are doing some really funky stuff with the candy. Like was mentioned, Scott down at Defalco's said they carbonate pint bottles perfectly. A customer up in New Hampshire actually suggested the cotton candy thing just before Christmas. Lynn from Great Lakes Hops uses the EKG in his tea and a brewer over at Hoppin Frog throws them at unscrupulous law enforcement officers (he told me the story at Homebrew Day so he may have been a little 'altered' at the time)!

So far it's been to Paris a few times, Kent (UK), Nelson (NZ), Melbourne (AU), Milzano (IT) and up to St Catharines (Ontario) last week. I'm just happy to ship across the state let alone to those far away places. I have stickers now so STAND BACK, haha!
