Sorry I cross posted with bmason1623.

From that list, I would be interested in Centennial and Sterling. Maybe a few others, I'm not familiar with them all.

I'd do up to 4 lb of centennial to make a deal go. Use that in my RIPA with simcoe.

Mt Hood, fuggles, and whatever someone else wants I'll do a lb or 2.

Those are my two choices as well.

Pellets are good but man does a counter full of fresh leaf make me giddy.

I regularly use Centennial, Willamette, Saaz, Perle, and Tettnanger.

Given that list, I think we'd be best off trying to time a group buy with the arrival of the 2012 harvest coming to market. That would give us the best shot in terms of interest and getting a decent price on hops that sell at a per-ounce premium.

As a hold-me-over FYI, I was able to get NS, Galaxy, and Simcoe from Farmhouse Supply this week while most everywhere else is out.

My chest freezer just can't handle 25 pounds of leaf hops. The current 25 pounds of pellets are no problem, though.

Yes, my kitchen and house for that matter smells like Amarillo hops...sorry little hop friends about the freezing home for which I had to place you.
I prefer leaf, easier to clean up in my kettle (yes hopstoppers do get clogged), less sediment and particulates in my beer, and the rogue seed from time to time.

Matt, I'll send you some notes on how I pseudo winter the seeds prior to starting germination.

OK this one vendors response to availability and pricing to our original order. It looks like more of retail pricing and I am certain we can get some more competitive pricing in the qty with some persistence.
I was told these are in stock, and pricing is based on our 11 lb ea. qty.

This is just for discussion, please no panicking, no orders or fulfillment.

Saaz 10.99/lb
Pacific Jade 17.50/lb
Cascade 10.49/lb
Northern Brewer 10.99/lb
Magnum 12.00/lb
5-lb of Nelson 20.99/lb
Mini bales of EKG, Mt.Hood, Chinook, Fuggle
All 13 lb except EKG 11lb
Fuggle 11.00/lb,
EKG 11.50/lb,
Mt. Hood 8.50/lb
Chinook 9.00/lb.
