Anyone know when the new crop of pellets usually arrives? Looks like they have whole hops up there for 2012. Psych.

Last year I ordered Amarillo VGXP01 leaf the first day it was available (sold out in less than a day) and that was 10-5-11 . It appears they are a couple weeks early this year as the leaf went on sale last week.

I suspect in a few days

BTW: what is the deal with centennial? is this OLD variety the new "must have" hop?

I just made a pre-order with labelpeelers.com, yesterday. They are advertising that they should be able to ship the new crop somewhere between late October - mid November. I've never ordered from them before, so I can't speak for their service or product. I wanted to purchase a lot, and wanted to make sure I got what I needed, so I figured I'd give them a shot. Might be worth looking into.

Apparently. Just about everywhere sold out last year, so that means it's the best hop in the world, right?

I like it a lot, but I'm not going out of my way to get it. The 70/30 mix of Cascade and Columbus works fine enough for my purposes. And it's a whole lot cheaper too.

I didn't mean that I think this is the best hop ever.... far from it, but it is a good judge of availability

I bought a couple of pounds of amarillo leaf hops two weeks ago from freshops. I haven't seen pellets out yet.
