Got a pound of cascades today. A few weeks ago, I bought a pound of willimette and a pound of EKG. Price was right. Shipping is the same on 2 lbs as one.

LHBS is 3.99 an ounce, some just dropped to 2.99. I didn't see any pounds or 1/4 pounds.

I had a bag of willimette in my freezer from about 8 years ago, 4.99 for 4 oz.

Cascades = APA

I think I'm going to order a pound of Cascade, Magnum, and Willamette. The Willamette is just because I can't resist 16oz of hops for $10.50. My LHBS is pretty reasonable at $2.45/oz but they can't compete with these prices.

Does anyone know if the shipping is the same for 3 pounds?

Mike

I ordered 6 lbs from them in Jan. They are great, fresh hops.
As mentioned above, $8 shipping for a pound sucks, but spread the shipping over the cost of2 or 3 or more pounds, and its a great price per ounce.

So it's pretty much $8 for shipping no matter how much you order?

Also do the hops you get say what the AA is for them? I just gives a range on the website.

The actual AA is included on the bulk package.

No, it goes up some, but its much less, like $8 for 1 pound, $10 for 2, $11 for 3...
don't quote me on those prices, they are just an example.
I think I paid about $18 for shipping 6 pounds.

Pro tip: $8 shipping on 1lb of hop pellets at $15/lb works out to 30% of the price per ounce of your LHBS, who is right now raking you over the hoppy coals.

I payed $6 to have 3lbs shipped to Idaho. YMMV.
The exact AA is printed on the slip on each package.



Hopsdirect is the only way to go for me from here on unless something drastic happens.

little bit of a noob question here:

for bittering hops, it's all about the AA% and quantity, right? i.e., 1 oz of 6% hops = 0.5 oz of 12% hops?

The reason I ask is this: hops at my LHBS cost about $3.50/oz. If I bought a pound of bittering hops here (since, according to my prowling around HBT, the flavor of bittering hops doesn't matter so much), say Galena or Magnum, and kept them in the freezer, I'd have enough bittering hops for lots of beers, right? Then I could just use the LHBS for taste/aroma hops (since I'm a newer brewer, I'm interested in making lots of different styles, and wouldn't want to commit myself to having to use one variety of finishing hops right now).

That would be ridiculously cheap.

Shoot, anyone in the Bay Area want to get in on a buy?

Thanks in advance for the help!
