Hello,

I was wondering. Hops direct is kind of hard to beat on pricing + they give ya extra.

Anyways. The US Goldings selection. Can I expect this to be very similiar to Styrian Goldings? I make Belgian ales and dont want to buy some useless hops.

I thought I had heard they are not the same. just need some clartification.

Thanks

ST

Styrian Goldings are actually a relative of Fuggles, but Goldings and Fuggles are fairly similar.

I think Hops Direct have fixed their scale unfortunately.

Why don't you just buy their Styrians? They're $6 cheaper/lb, too.

Yeah, they "fixed" there scales but people are claiming they are still getting at least a few ounces more than they ordered.

Now thats not a full pound more than ordered like it was back in the good 'ol days.
