Ugh, the freakin' hop scarcity is my least favorite part of homebrewing. I'm trying to pay for my simcoe right now (I guess Amarillo is out already again? UGH!) and I keep getting a screen saying there's an error, then there's no error listed (except maybe red print that says Paypal is not required, but that was there to start with). I try again and get an error again. Is this what everyone was talking about?

Sorry, I don't have time to reread the thread, I'm trying to buy hops lest I get shut out of them yet again this year.

PS, thanks Steelers/Farmhouse for the opportunity to buy these! No complaints from me, but just frustration. I really need these hops.

Check your email, if you got that far you likely have a pending payment order from them that you can go back in and pay.. here's what mind looked like.

Dear XXXXX,

This is to confirm that you recently saved the following order in our store :

Order Number : CHO_-XXXXX
Order Total : $141.92
Payment Type : PayPal IPN

As soon as payment has been received and verified, your Order Status will be updated to 'Paid'. You can track your Order Status by logging on to your 'Account'.

If you have any questions regarding your order, please contact us via email at Farmhousebrewingsupply@gmail.com.
I hear ya about hop shortages.. last year I didn't plan ahead and ended up being unable to brew the beers I wanted to later in the year simply because I ran out of the hops and wasn't willing to pay 4oz for them. This year I've been trying to order my entire years worth as the 2012 crop comes available. Harder on the pocket book, easier on the anxiety level

If you missed this one and Simcoe is your goal I wouldn't fret, I think John said he'll have more. Even if he's totally out of the year, watch the classifieds as I see people selling their excess 2011.

Got my Centennial, any idea when Warrior or Magnum might show up? I think that's all I need to complete my Hop spending spree.

It's actually a lot cheaper by the ounce, just a bigger hit all at ounce. But I do like to know that I'll have the hops I like when I want to brew 10-11 months from now. Then it all begins again.

If you're brewing on a regular basis, buying the hops and grain in bulk is the only way to go. I do 10G all grain batches and my 12 oz glass cost is about .25 to .50 cents per glass depending on style. As much as I love my LHBS, I can't afford to buy my ingredients one batch at a time.

BTW, the 4 oz packs at FarmHouseBrewingSupply.com are great also. I don't like buying 1 oz at a time and sometimes a pound of some varieties is just way too much. Kudos to them for doing the 4 oz size (at reasonable prices).

Super cool of you to respond with this, thank you. It turns out it was an autofill error. It entered California in the box that said "State or Province not listed? Enter here"

Basically user error. I'm stoopid. I wish I could even blame it on being drunk, but alas, haven't started drinking yet either!

Trust me I know.. I buy all my hops by the lb now and most of them from FHB. It's just a larger hit up front, but when I can jump on hops like Amarillo for $1.37 an oz vs my LHBS going to want $3+ an oz if they even have them it's worth it.

Here's a snippet from my spreadsheet, and before you call horder, this is historical stock as well so I can track pricing.. I don't have as much hops left as this might make it seem

Code:
Source	Type	AA%	Cost Per Oz	Crop Year
Farmhouse Brew	Amarillo	9.20%	$1.58 	2011
Farmhouse Brew	Amarillo	8.50%	$1.37 	2012
Farmhouse Brew	Cascade	5%	$0.90	2011
BMW	Cascade	6.80%	$2.15	2011
Farmhouse Brew	Centennial	10.50%	$1.25	2011
Farmhouse Brew	Centennial	10.50%	$0.90 	2011
Beverage People	Chinook	11.10%	$2.00 	2011
Farmhouse Brew	Citra	11.40%	$1.99	2011
Farmhouse Brew	Citra	13.60%	$1.19 	2011
Hops Direct	Columbus	15.80%	$0.27 	2011
Beverage People	Magnum	14.10%	$2.00	2011
Farmhouse Brew	Nelson Sauvin	11.80%	$1.38 	2012
Hops Direct	Nugget	13.20%	$0.42 	2011
Farmhouse Brew	Simcoe	12.90%	$1.70	2011
Farmhouse Brew	Simcoe	12.20%	$1.95	2011
Farmhouse Brew	Simcoe	12.90%	$1.56 	2011
Farmhouse Brew	Simcoe	13.50%	$1.19 	2012
Farmhouse Brew	Sorachi Ace	12.60%	$1.56 	2011
Hops Direct	US Golding	4.00%	$0.38 	2011

Awesome! Thanks for the quick reply. I'm sure you're heard it a lot over the years, but your customer service, on this forum especially, is outstanding.
