Family fruit market I think. The wife got 4 oz for $.99 yesterday.

Essentially the same price then, what's city grocery tax 8.75%.

I know it's essentially the same. I think groceries are taxed much lower but at least I know where to find it in a pinch at a good price

Yes and much appreciated, thank you.

I thought you meant the pricing was a hose job

We have received your quote request and will get that to you as soon as it is processed. The New Zealand an Australian Hops, US Northern Brewer and US Saaz are not available for spot sale. We cannot sell Brewcraft items to homebrewers and that includes all fruit products and most spices as well as some chemicals. The Irish Moss is not available to homebrewers but the Supermoss is. It comes in a 3.5 lb ($40) or a 7.5 lb package ($83). Would you like to substitute? We do offer the Coriander, Sweet Orange Peel and Bitter Orange Peel from San Francisco Herb. Would you like to substitute?

Thanks and have a great day,
Mary"

I say we let the distributor make the substitution for us. What about the hops? Do we just drop them or substitute. Myself, I don't care to substitute so I'm leaning towards dropping them without substituting. Let's try to wrap this up by this afternoon, say 1 pm?
I would not like to substitute my Irish moss for super moss. What a bummer on the news of the hops. I hope someone finds someone who will help us out with good deals on good hops

No hose job. $.25 an oz is good no matter where it's from. I just wouldn't want to buy a pound of coriander ever. I used an oz in a wit this summer and it was strong. I hate wits and ended up dumping half a keg when it didn't go at the annual BBQ

I was just interested in splitting the sweet and bitter orange peel. I would take half a pound of each, but could probably take a pound of bitter orange peel just to facilitate the buy if needed.

I don't need coriander. I grow my own and have more than I could use.
