Hops Substitute (Bad year for New Zealand Hops)
Hey everyone, I need a substitute for Nelson Sauvin, Pacific Jade, and Pacifica. I am trying to make my New Zealand Rye IPA for a homebrew competition in August. I have heard It was not a good year for New Zealand Hops or any hops at that.....
Need a hop guru fast!!!!........Thanks for your help!!!

You can get some of those hops from Seven Bridges out of Santa Cruz California...I have also had good luck with Napa Fermentation...You can look them up on the net. The Napa hops were in brew craft sealed without light exposure.

The Seven Bridges were vaccume sealed but in clear plastic...The whole leaf from Seven were from 2009...Yes they are getting harder to find.

New Zealand hops are the finest in the world. Try Riwaka hops. They are a nice spicey oily one...Heck all of my New Zealand hops have been great.
