Do you know how he’s calculating the weight? Is that .25/oz. for wet/ fresh hops or is he dividing the wet/ fresh weight by 5 to get a fair dry weight estimate and its .25/oz. on that number?

at .25/oz that comes out to about 1.00/oz dry, still fairer than 3.00/oz !

Thats $.25 per oz wet id assume. Since people r picking and leaving. Which isnt really bad if ur planning a fresh hop ale of somesort. Atleast i dont think. And most people on the hop threads grow hops. I know a hell of a lot of people that dont grow and pay $3 and oz for pellets all day long for brew day. So i say $.25/oz is nothing for these folks. Brewimg a fresh beer is about the ingredients. Kinda like organic chefs. U pay a little extra for a quality product. Might be just me but thats how i feel.

Cheers!!

It's not so bad, that would make dry about $18-$20lb.

And this is a organic farm. So that is an added quality
