Default Sold - WTB: Anyone care to split a HopsDirect order?

I'm looking for someone in the Milwaukee, WI area (Waukesha County Lake Country actually) who might like to split an order. I'd like to buy several types, but 1# of any one type is a bit much for my level of brewing.

So, if you want a 1/2# of three or four varieties at those great HD prices, send me a PM.

If I lived close to you I would do it. I tried this a few months ago with some people around my area but everyone backed out. Good luck!

Thanks. I figure it's worth a try.

I'm thinking of ordering 3 or 4 types. They have 1# minimum for ordering, so we would end up with a half pound each of those 3 or 4. We each could suggest 6 or so to each other and see if we can get enough overlap to each be satisfied with the result. Their prices are low enough that I could buy and discard what gets old, but I hate wasting like that.

Why would you have to discard? As long as you keep them vacuum sealed, they'll be good for so long. When I was at DFH this summer they were still using hops from 2005 and they weren't even frozen.

I don't want to disrupt this thread; but just to clarify, temperature plays a much greater role in hop degradation than does an anaerobic environment.

Just wanted to add to the guy above me. There are actually beers in which you used 'aged' hops for a different effect. That is pretty much the only way you would want to use unfrozen hops that are 4 years old.

I just did this with a friend. FYI shipping on 5 lbs to Ohio was a little under $11. I think they have a fairly high minimum on the first pound but it doesn't go up much as the order grows.
