Cool. The first pic looks like you are striking up a serious male stripper pose. I was getting nervous about scrolling down.

BTW, your house is super clean. SWMBO must run a tight ship.

SWMBO? Try me... dude, I am the cleanest, most organized person I know. We are actually cleaning up in the morning before hop customers come over! I also DRILL into my kids that I own this place, they are passing through, so to treat it with the utmost respect.

Dude, I dunno...

What I can say is this. The #1 bags were about 2oz over each... no more, no less really.

I WILL NEVER buy 11 pound or 5 pound bags again... they were over by like ONE OUNCE! So if I had purchased them in ONE pound bags, we would have seen about 30 ounces of EXTRA that we didnt see.

Total overage I am guessing was 4.5-5 POUNDS...

Basically if you ordered 8 ounces, chances are you got 9 ounces. If you ordered a pound, you got whatever HD sent, generally 18oz. If you ordered less than 8 ounces, you really didnt see much overage, maybe .25-.5oz.

BUT THEY ALSO SHORTED US A POUND OF PERLE

yeah, i guess that makes sense as the 11lb and 5lbers really didn't have that much of price break from what i can tell.

Have you been able to contact them about the Perle? Never heard a story about HopsDirect customer service.

Yah, we will have the Perle in a week.... sorta bums me out, but we got 49 pounds!

It was a successful buy, I mean you cant complain about 5 POUNDS of extra hops.

Yah the price break on the bulk qtys. is small, does not outweigh the overage that you would get if you ordered it all #1 at a time.

My fridge now has 19 different hop types, and a total of about 10 pounds!
