Want to know if anyonne has found a US source for purchasing Galaxy hops. These sound like they are an incredibly interesting hop, and I'd like totry them, but can't find a source.

Can't believe there isn't anyone that has tried these.

It's an Australia/New Zealand hop that I don't think I've come across, although I couldn't be sure.

Here is a link for an Australian site that is selling them if you really want them...

I guess that patience is a virtue...... Over a year later I'm tooling around on Hops Direct and I find that they have them by the pound. Order placed...... can't wait to try these out in a pale ale.

I'll update on the results.

I've tasted a Galaxy DIPA at Hillfarmstead not too long ago. These hops are amazing. They're really tropical and remind of pineapple and mango, I'd love to find some too!

I think Hops Direct ships to Canada.... I priced these out when I thought I'd have to buy them from Oz.... would have been like $80-100/lb for these with shipping. I'm gladly paying $21/lb including shipping.

I'll have to check that out, living in Canada is a pain sometimes. Almost everything interesting that can be bought online from the states will be taxed at the customs. Why!!

I had the privilege of drinking a few 'galaxy' brews with the brewmaster of pub in Sydney last year. He was a big fan of using them throughout the boil. And he made some excellent brews.

He gave me about 4oz to bring back to the states, but I panicked before going through customs (had to first go to Argentina & Brazil and was worried about whether they would believe me what they were!) and threw them out -- I know, PARTY FOUL!!!

Thankfully, my LHBS - South Bay Brewing Supply in Torrance, CA - now has them! Going to be doing a pale with them on sunday. Can.not.WAIT!

I got an email today from Rebel Brewer saying they're getting Aussie and NZ hops in, including Galaxy. Maybe check them out?
