Yep, I just wish they'd hold orders till all of their 2012 is released so we could pay shipping once instead of each time we order. Oh well.

Neither, I actually have knowledge on the subject, not just an opinion.

Not to butt in on the conversation, but I'm pretty sure selective breeding is how I first learned about gene modification...the little 4x4 matrix of light and dark colored corn kernels...in like 5th grade...

They're doing a weird Friday release cycle this year where they release a few varieties each Friday. Last Friday was Cascade/Centennial.
You know what time they start taking orders?

Also, what are some other hops I should consider buying in bulk? I prefer to brew pales, ipas, reds, belgians, and wits.

Troegs is buying all of them up to make Perpetual

We had problems getting it, too.

Wow. Not another hop embargo. I ordered a pound each of citra and amarillo a few weeks ago. I new they would sell out adventually, but jeepers that was quick. Should have ordered more.....

Are you sure you mean $5/lb.? Sounds like that may be a typo.

Just the Belma is 5 a pound last I checked. New variety they are trying out and offering a great deal I believe. I think the rest are around $16/lb

I thought the same thing when I saw that at first, all of those only 5/lb! holy crap! then I realized its only the Belma hes talking about (i think )
