Default Hops Direct Pellets?

Anyone know when the new crop of pellets usually arrives? Looks like they have whole hops up there for 2012. Psych.

What do you guys think about this prices (all 5 kg bags) they seem like they are a little short but it keeps changing all the time

I just made a pre-order with labelpeelers.com, yesterday. They are advertising that they should be able to ship the new crop somewhere between late October - mid November. I've never ordered from them before, so I can't speak for their service or product. I wanted to purchase a lot, and wanted to make sure I got what I needed, so I figured I'd give them a shot. Might be worth looking into.

Last year I ordered Amarillo VGXP01 leaf the first day it was available (sold out in less than a day) and that was 10-5-11 . It appears they are a couple weeks early this year as the leaf went on sale last week.

I suspect in a few days

BTW: what is the deal with centennial? is this OLD variety the new "must have" hop?

Apparently. Just about everywhere sold out last year, so that means it's the best hop in the world, right?

I like it a lot, but I'm not going out of my way to get it. The 70/30 mix of Cascade and Columbus works fine enough for my purposes. And it's a whole lot cheaper too.

I didn't mean that I think this is the best hop ever.... far from it, but it is a good judge of availability

I bought a couple of pounds of amarillo leaf hops two weeks ago from freshops. I haven't seen pellets out yet.
