I've been using brewmasters warehouse and love their site, especially the brew builder tool.

But in a never ending challenge of saving money I'd like to know where you all buy Hops in bulk?

The one place I have gotten hops is from Farmhouse Brewing Supply.

They sell 4 oz packs for between $2.40 -$5.00 depending on the variety. Pretty good deal and you don't have to commit to a full pound of a single hop.

+1 for FHBS, their semi bulk packaging helps me save money and try a bunch of quality hops. FTW!

Amazon is always a good option too. Cheap and reliable.

Why look past your current supplier?

Thanks for all the advice!

I'm thinking about loading up on a "core" group of hops and being that I love APAs and IPAs I am leaning towards the C hops.

Maybe 1 lb of each, Columbus, Chinook, and Cascade and 2 lbs of Centennial

I agree. I have purchased pre-crushed brews and now my specialty grains from BMW (I have a crusher now and buy base grain in bulk). Previously I have used Hops Direct, but if you look at Ed's bulk hop pricing there is at most $1-2 difference per pound compared to H.D. Factor in the flat rate shipping and it is a no brainer. Thanks Ed ! (I will be ordering soon!)

If it weren't for HBT, I would have never known that you have bulk hops.
