Yes, but 10-15% of the orders will top out and noramlly they "re-open" sales for the hops about a week later or maybe have a really big Black Friday sale.

I don't think so. I got a lb each of Centennial, Citra, Amarillo and Belma. The citra sold out in under 5 mins. When I placed my order it said 160 lb of citra left. By the time I got my order through, it was down to 6 lb. I just don't see how anyone could place multiple orders.

Not possible. Software could filter those sort of limits by address.
Unless they have multiple houses and payed xX in shipping then i guess so

I was refreshing their page literally every 5 minutes or so starting at 8am this morning. Even so, when I saw the listings citra was already sold out. I did get some amarillo, but there were under 20 pounds left when I did. Quantities were limited to 1 pound/order, so even if you had multiple windows open you couldn't practically have ordered more than a few pounds in that time. Were there really many hundreds of homebrewers looking for a pound of citra so obsessively to get them in a span of 3 minutes, or did they only have a very limited supply? Either way it feels almost like an advertising stunt to pretend to have them at all. On the other hand, they've been upfront about not getting any simcoe at all, so I'm inclined to believe it's just a really short supply this year.

I checked the site three times today for Amarillo and Citra. Went to look at 5:15PST and they were sold out....

Such a disappointment. Was waiting all week...ugg.

Congrats to those that got some though.

I was there 2 min after 5:00 PST. There were 3 lbs left. I put one in my cart then clicked checkout. It then said, "there are not enough quantity in stock to complete this order." I was so pissed!

Ah, well. Cheers to those that got 'em!

I just got an email from Williams brewing and they just put a bunch of 2012 hops on sale.
They've got Citra but it's $12.90 for six ounces!

There are no words to describe how disappointed I am I missed out on the Citra pellets. I have some Galaxy squirreled away in my stash still, which kinda makes me less bitter, and I am still stocked up on Amarillo so meh on that, but jesus h tapdancing christ.

Maybe I'll be grabbing some Belma to try after all.
