Default cheapest place for simcoe hops?

where is the cheapest place you found for simcoe hops including shipping? i need a pound or 2, i want to brew a big batch of LWPA and some amarillo/simcoe ipa coming up.

i know some sponsors here have them, but im not looking for great customer service or fast shipping times, etc. im just concentrated on cheapest shipped price.

+1 on the price...and you can consider the great customer service and fast shipping times as extras he throws in

I can't remember for sure- I think I got mine from Nikobrew for $12 a pound or so.

If you are willing to live dangerously, there's some simcoe on ebay for like $6-10/lb from 2009 stock. The two sellers I looked at have 100% and 99.2% feedbacks...I am cautiously considering.

It seems the particular one I found is gone. The same seller still has Cascade for 6/lb I believe, but it is like $9 shipping...on a side note.

The Chi Company (chicompany.com) has 11 pound packages for $185 with free shipping (16.82/pound). Perhaps someone would be interested in setting up a group buy. I was fortunate to buy a pound from a local brewery for $15. He told me that his cost was $12/pound.

I've been looking for good prices on simcoe too, but I'm only interested in whole, not pellets. Not really excited about freshops 1.75/ounce, especially considering I bout a couple pounds last year for about half that from hops direct. Hopefully they'll stock them again this year.
