Hops

Hey all. I am interested in trying to get some hops in bulk. I don't know about you guys, but I pretty much buy hops by the lb anyway. I was thinking that we could set up splits for common hops, like EKG or Magnum, Crystal, etc. 1 share would be 1 lb of hops. We need 11 to close the split. This would put 55 lbs of hops in the ~6$+ range.

You want to look under the "Contract/Spot" column starting on page 16 for a general idea of pricing. Shipping would be basically nothing per bag. I assume that we would do it by poundage with 55lbs of hops for ~$6 shipping.

The hops would come in 1lb sealed mylar bags (I have gotten hops through NCM before). ALL HOPS FOR THIS PURPOSE WOULD BE PELLETS But you need to buy the 11lbs box of one type to get the price. So for each hop type we need turn burn up 11 shares.

What do you guys think?


I would be interested in these (Jeff maybe you can set something up on the sheet?):
(bolded are my top five of interest)

HU‐90CLM Columbus 14-16% (T) $5.56
HU‐90MTH Mt Hood 4-8% (T) $8.30
HU‐90GSZ Saaz 2-5% (T) $7.48
HU‐90GMG Magnum 11-16% (T) $7.05
HU‐90EKG East Kent Golding 4-7% (T) $9.80

HU‐90CAS Cascade 4.5-7% (T) $6.39
HU‐90CTP Centennial Type 9.5-11.5% (T) $6.80
HU‐90FGL Fuggle 4-5.5% (T) $8.80
HU‐90WLT Willamette 4-6% (T) $6.05
HU‐90TNG Tettnang 4-5% (T) $8.57

I'm interested in pretty much any hops that I don't have (which is most of the stuff on your list, Cidah). I always find that I never have the hops I want for a given recipe and HATE paying the high cost at the LHBS. I probably wouldn't take more than a pound or two though of any one variety.

Cidah I would be interested in a pound of everything on your list.

The keg buy is still alive just trying to lock up a price. Is everyone still interested?

Sounds good guys - everyone else please keep posting interest.

My goal would be we would get 11 to buy 1 lb each. But I would buy up to two lbs of certain types of hops if that made a difference.

I am still interested in the kegs. My buddy is about to build a keezer too so keep me in the loop.

I would definitly be in for a few lbs of hops.

I would be in for at least one of each:
HU‐90MTH Mt Hood 4-8% (T) $8.30
HU‐90GSZ Saaz 2-5% (T) $7.48
HU‐90EKG East Kent Golding 4-7% (T) $9.80

Maybe two of the EKG, I am feeling the English Pale Ale/ESBs this summer.

I'm out on the keg buy or maybe in for just a couple. I'll try and remember to update the spreadsheet when I'm at my computer. I couldn't wait and ordered some.

yes. The ones I have gotten from NCM have been very good quality too. Last time they actually tossed in a hop union bag! haha. In the past they use a red mylar bag.

Hey all let me know what you might be interested in for hops and I will keep track. You can add more hop types to the sheet - just let me know what you are looking for. Also we will not have commitment on these hops until we get to 11 bags per type. Here is what I have so far (see below):

Note: I would (and it sounds like others woudl as well) double up on quite a few of these at these prices (I eat EKG for breakfast on my toast). So let's see if we can get enough interest and have hops be a new big portion of the summer buy. I would love to rack in these kinds of savings and go from tons of little bags in my freezer to large bags for each type!


Drocu - I put you down for one of each, feel free to let me know which you do not want if applicable.
gcdowd - let me know what types and qty for each you have interest in.

Almost half way there on some of them - I posted the chart below on post #2 for tracking purposes.
