Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't there really only one North American hop season per year? Don't we have some time to get it figured out?

I definitely agree. I apologize I forgot to print those t&c's, I will do it in the morning. We should possibly in a private group discuss things like variety interest, payment option, quantities, contract obligations etc.

I've been using "payment owed" and that seems be OK. Since I have my bank account linked to paypal, there are no fees that way either for a direct transfer.

You are right, but the contracts on some varieties are not avail until 2013-14. So like any commodity its a gamble, but the contract is an attempt to limit price volatility and guarantee a certain qty for a speculated crop production. We have time, yes.

I still have 4-5 lines of communication open with various leaf suppliers for possibly the next buy.

I'd be interested in getting in on that. When were you planning on that buy happening?

The next hop buy, sorry if that was confusing. I was trying to coordinate these suppliers to coincide with the current buy, but just didn't get very expedient return calls.

For those who who have not paid yet please do so promptly. The order has been paid already out of my own pocket so to speak. I usually wait for everyone to pay me buy I wanted to get this order in before more hops became out of stock. Pay for the value of the hops then we will figure out the shipping costs.
