Yep. My mistake on starting to buy bulk is timing. As far as hops go, I'm kind of stuck paying more for awhile unless I find a good deal

I think the shortage is because it's relatively new and their is some hype around it. A lady at my LHBS thinks there is some conspiracy theory on why they are hard to get, supply and demand.

As far as hops go the character is truly unique.

Thanks for the info!

Cascade has worked well for me early in the boil, then some Citra throughout the boil and then BAM 3oz dryhop in the secondary.
