I'm confused. Hopsdirect and freshops are growers that sell to homebrewers. What middleman? I doubt you'll beat their prices but have a go at it. You'll probably want a vendor account here if you'll be actively marketing but that's for the mods to deal with.

Freshops: min. order 12 oz., 2 oz. per variety That's only enough for 10 gallons, right?

[Despite what people might believe, I've got a 14 oz recipe in my files.]

Or you can do a group buy at Hops Direct... and take any amount you want. We bought 50 pounds this year. No one in the Indy area is hurtin' for hops now

Looking forward to seeing the site and pricing.

Hops Direct, Freshops, Nikko and now this dude.
