PSA: Hops are getting dirt-cheap again :)
Just a PSA:

I was just checking the HopsDirect web site, and it's pretty amazing that you can get hops for as cheap as $10.50/lb again (a year ago, that would have gotten us maybe 3-4 oz max for most varieties). Some other web sites charge about twice as much as HopsDirect does, so it pays to shop around.

Yeah, I stocked up a couple months ago with pellets from Hops Direct... And I know LOTS of other HBT members have done the same, including a huge group buy organized by The Pol.

Funny thing is, now it looks like my favorite cheap yeast (Nottingham) is about to get more expensive?

Yes, I have about 8 or 9 pounds in my freezer now.

I'm not a big fan of paying 8 bucks for a 1lb package for shipping.

Hopefully they're good. I just got a lb of centennial and a lb of columbus in the mail today :rockin:

$9 shipping, so $50 total. $1.56 per oz. Beats $3.50-$4.00 from the LHBS

They are the freshest hops I have ever been able to find.

The freshness from hops direct was good imo. Well packaged and smelled fresh. Initial tastes of my first beers brewed with them are good.

I bought a bunch of stuff and have used the cascade, centennial, and hersbrucker. Many of their hops are under $1.50 now. That is literally less than 25% of LHBS costs in many cases.

I have 3 pounds arriving today. Hopsdirect is a good vendor.

Bastards...just got back from the LHBS and still paying $3/oz.
