Default HELP! LHBS having huge sale on hops, need a good hop bomb recipe!

Whats your favorite, super hoppy (but balanced) beer you have made? My LHBS just got in like 100 lbs of hops and is blowing them out.

What is the blow out price?? What are you willing to spend? How many ounces or pounds are we talking here?

Checkout the Dictador in my dropdown. It's a clone of Avery's Maharaja.

I will be up that way this weekend... can you tell me which LHBS? I would like to stock up as well!!

p.s. I enjoy centennials the most... check out Edwort's IPA; it is very similar to Stone's IPA

Guess I should have pointed that out to share the wealth, lol.

Rebel Brewer Homebrew Supply Tom always has as good as or as low of price as anyone else, but he just got in a huge shipment of hops and is spreading the leafy love.

REGULAR pricing DO NOT pay over $1.00-$2.00 an ounce
Sale pricing is anything less than the above.


I just got about 7.5 POUNDS for $1.05 an ounce shipped... that was not a SALE price BTW (hopsdirect). You can pick them up easy for $1.00 - $1.50 an ounce without a sale though, I wouldnt pay more than that, you absolutely dont need to.


see Hops Direct, Cherries Direct - available today from Puterbaugh Farms
see www.freshops.com
see Nikos Homebrew Supply

These are the three heavy hitters when it comes to hop value and customer service. LHBS pricing generally cannot hang with the hop farms and dealers.
