Wet/Fresh Hop Presale
 
Here is the deal we will be having Fresh off the vine hops being shipped in directly from the grower. These hops have not been dried and are perfect for a Harvest/Wet Hop/Fresh Hop brew. Of course not many home brewers have access to hops like these, unless you grow your own hops. The hops will be shipped to us over night within 24 hours of being harvested. We will be selling these hops in 1 lb increments only. Typical usage for wet hops is 5 ounces of wet to 1 ounce of dried hops so a pound really does not go that far.



We will have Cascade, Centennial, Amarillo, Chinook, Simcoe, and Citra available (you can find them all here.)for pre order at $15.99 per lb. We will only be purchasing what has been pre ordered so you have to order them before hand. We have about 10 days before the deadline of July 30th. Each variety will have to be paid for separately and shipping will be charged on each order since the hops will not all be arriving on the same day. If for some reason they do we will of course refund the shipping charges on orders that are shipped together.

EDIT: Same thread from last year but with this years info.

That is what I was guessing. How old will they be when they reach the customers door?

I have thinking about wet hops, are they better for a dry hop or kettle hop? I'm guessing they would better as dry hops.


thanks

Here is what I know for sure. They will be shipped within 24 hours of harvest and we are having them shipped overnight to us. Once we receive a variety in the store all of that variety will ship out that day (Which is why we are requiring separate orders for each variety you want to order). After that it is just dependent on the transit time to you, which is based on your location and shipping method chosen. You could have them as fresh as a couple of days old.

Most wet hop recipes call for boil additions with almost all of the additions being 30 minutes or less left in the boil. If you wanted to "Dry" hop with wet/fresh hops you would have to have a beer ready for the additions when they came in. I would also worry about grassy flavor added to a beer the was "Dry Hopped" with wet hops.

Edit: The pic on each different variety is the ground transit time from our location (zip code 30062) so you can have an idea on the transit time if you chose ground shipping.

I "Dry Hop" (Wet Hop) with fresh hops all the time. I don't get grassy flavors. If you leave them in too long, they can impart a grassy flavor. 3-7 days is usually what I do. They create a fantastic flavor that can't be matched with "Dry Hopping". I strongly recommend people use fresh hops for your Aroma and Wet Hop. Get them while you can! Just my .02!

Newb question for you:
If I want wet hops for just one recipe, can I dry the rest myself in the typical fashion (low oven heat/food dehydrator)?

Yes you can without any problems.

For once it's nice to live in Alabama! Brewmasters warehouse has always been great on shipping and prices so there is nothing stopping me from taking advantage of this. Thank you so much Brew Masters Warehouse(err... Ed) for all the great deals!
