As someone posted in the thread about the sale going on, HopsDirect is known to be a reputable vendor, so they 'should' be storing them correctly, even though they are from last season.
I pulled the trigger on 10# this afternoon. Should be in good shape for the next year or so.
Item 01: 1 each HCOLP1 Columbus Pellet Hops 1 lb. $ 12.75
Item 02: 1 each HCEP1 Centennial Pellet Hops 1 lb. $ 10.75
Item 03: 2 each HFUGP1 Fuggle Pellet Hops 1 lb. $ 9.75
Item 04: 1 each HHALGP1 Hallertau Pellets (GR) 1 lb. $ 10.75
Item 05: 1 each HMALU1 Magnum (US) Pellets: 1 lb. $ 9.75
Item 06: 1 each HWILP1 Willamette Pellet Hops 1 lb. $ 6.75
Item 07: 2 each HVANP1 Vanguard Pellet Hops 1 lb. $ 9.75
Item 08: 1 each HCASP1 Cascade Pellet Hops 1 lb. $ 8.75
Now I just need to find a good bag of 2-row and MO for free, and I'll be all set.
Thanks for all the responses....
