Default Kudo's to Hopsdirect again.

$21.93 delivered for 1# of Galena and Cascade whole hops from hopsdirect.com. The galena weighed in at 2.3# and the cascade at 1.9#. Think they just grab handfuls and jam em in the bag. Hop pillows via crappy cell camera:

You know, I never did weigh mine out when I got them...I wonder how much they actually sent me.

cool - my IPA will like the randall. It's mellowed and is quite tasty now IMO.

I've got to throw out some kudos to hopsdirect as well. Last week I ordered a pound each of cascade and centennial. Since I'm only about 40 miles away I drove over to pick them up (and stopped at snipes mountain brewing company for a few pints and lunch). When I got home and vacuum packed them into smaller bags my totals ended up just over 2 pounds of each. The woman there (Elizabeth I think was her name) said the new harvest is expected to be in around october and I'll be sure to head over and stock up.

Slightly off-topic... Is there a standard ratio to use for whole hops when the recipe calls for pellets? I'd like to try whole hops but am unsure about this...

The default settings in beersmith are for -10% for leaf hops and -8% for plug hops.

For 1oz centennial (at 10.6%) for 60 minutes with pellet hops the IBU listed is 36.9, for the same hops as leaf it says its 33.2 IBU

I recall seeing more information somewhere on the web but I'm not sure where

Seems straight forward enough... for some reason, I thought it wasn't that straight forward. Thanks!

On a related question, since I'm also one who has almost always used pellets, does that adjustment relate only to the bittering aspects of the hops, or does flavor/aroma extraction also need to be adjusted by ~10%?

Just wanted to chip in my $.02 as well since it is my first order... hopsdirect is pretty awesome.
