I just updated my order to reflect the out of stock hops. Bummer that so many are gone, but I'm excited to try Zythos and maybe get some simcoe!

ATTENTION

For those that are not in the Chicago, Wisconsin, Indiana and Iowa areas please do not request to be added to the database. This buy is regional only. I will not be shipping anything anywhere. Everything is local pickup. Not trying to be a jerk but just trying to keep these buys manageable. Thanks for your understanding.

Hmm? I see it at the bottom of the page. It shows 10 out of 11 are still available, yet i want 3 pounds. Something is not right.

It hasn't been updated for 44 lb splits yet.

Remember everyone, these buys are for our own use. I see people wanting 44 pound boxes for themselves. No home brewer uses that much hops in a year. I suspect that people want to turn around and sell them. All I can say is be prudent with your ordering of both spot and contract purchases and don't potentially f*** it up for the rest of us in the future. If the group wants to impose a limit per person I would be quite all right with that. But I will let the group decide.

I recommend a per person limit, but considering that there are like 5 hops available, it may not be possible to fill the minimums unless people order more than they can use.

Also, I don't think people know how to properly use the website, so they may not want 44 lbs to themselves.
