Mine are still stuck on "Hops Pre-Ordered"

Once again, some petulant homebrewer with his first-world problems (I'm not going to have Citra hops in time to make my imperial IPA recipe this weekend...waaaahhh) complaining about a vendor on a forum, instead of taking the issue up with company itself.

Passive aggressive much?

I enjoy Citra hops, but I don't find them that amazing that I need to get bent out of shape if I can't get them. I wonder how many people bought them just because they are in such high demand and problably bought way too many. It's like a feeding frenzy... The day I can't get Cascade,centennial or magnum I'll cry

I took it up with the company and get the continuing delay tactic. Been told three times another two weeks.

Centennial would truly be a tragedy, one of my favorite IPA's so far is all centennial.

I spoke with someone at Label Peelers on Tuesday and they said it would ship out soon. No confirmation email yet, but I didn't pre-order until mid-October FWIW. No rush here. As long as I get them.

I have not received mine, or confirmation of them being sent, yet either. But my correspondence with them was polite and they answered my questions in a timely fashion. I also preordered simply to ensure getting what I wanted vs. speed of delivery. So, as long as it shows up in the next few weeks, I am fine with that.

They had the one ounce packs I believe(last years maybe?). The delay seems to be with this years 1Lb orders. I got hops ordered from 3 different places so if labelpeelers is a little behind, not a big deal to me.

I heard that HopsUnion was saying they may not get all their hops fully pelletized until the end of the year. It's a process that takes time. If everyone wasn't waiting around trying to snap up all the hops at once, the process would be: harvest in fall, process and pelletize by late year, then the stores have stock until they run out. Their posted dates were the best they knew at that time. It wasn't a guarantee. I agree it sounds a little whiny - if you don't have hops right now, it's poor planning on your part. Order from more than one vendor, order enough when they are available to insure you have stock when you need it.
