Even if the last 6 or 7 split boxes don't fill, that is still over 350lbs of hops this buy in essentially less than 4 days after opening. Crazy!

Would we ever get to a weight where shipping freight would make sense over UPS?

From the supplier:

Bill,

There is no typical shipping cost, it will fluctuate often depending on cost of gas, the total pounds shipped, how many boxes and cost of the product.

For example:

1-44# box of Cascade via UPS Ground est. $33.87

5-44# boxes of Cascade via UPS Ground est. $149.35

1-11# box of Zythos via UPS Ground est. $15.33

4-11# in 1 master pack box of Zythos via UPS Ground est. $33.24

More than 9-44# boxes of 200/lbs we ship on a pallet, max would be 30-44# boxes or 130-11# boxes…prices due vary.

30-44# boxes via UPS Freight est. $416.30 ETA 4 business days

130-11# boxes via UPS Freight est. $479.56 ETA 4 business days

I hope this helps, please note that UPS Ground is also 4 business days.

Maybe I missed it, but where are we getting the hops from? Sorry if this is a dumb question.

I think what I'm going to do is to have everyone pay initially just for the hops. Once they calculate shipping and they ship out I'll ask everyone to pay the shipping costs. Seems easier that way.

So if you place the order tonight, any idea when it'll arrive considering the upcoming holiday?

Do they offer FOB freight, or a terminal drop. Might be 7-10 days tho.

This supplier is not some online store. They are a major hops supplier in the brewing industry.

Took last pound of Columbus. All closed out. Yeah, I took one for the team

What am I thinking with buying 14 pounds of hops? I might be eating these things for lunch and dinner. Going to be brewing a lot of beer in the next few months. Let it snow. Who cares.....

Oh well.....great prices, how can you pass up a deal?

Thanks for everyone making this happen.

Mark

Don't get me wrong, I wasn't thinking it was an online order from Amazon or anything. I have lots of respect for what you're putting together for all of us. Just trying to plan my pickup since I'd be coming from Madison.
