any chance they will have more available tomorrow, or more likely, next friday? In all reality I should probably just buy 12 oz from williams, the cost is probably worth it so I can instead rdwhahb

While I love Puterbaugh Farms/HD and have ordered many, many lbs of hops from them, this year with the "lottery mentality" has really turned me off. In years past, there was not this frenzy to order hops and you did not have to spend your day on line waiting for the opportunity to order. Curiously they are not offering imported pellet hops such as Nelson, Galaxy, etc. which they have in the past. I'm a big fan of the big 3 (Amarillo, Citra, Simcoe) but I also know that there are many other hops out there such as the Aussie & NZ hops as well as US hops designed to bridge the shortage (7C's, Falconers Flight, etc.) that are great hops in their own right.

I was one of the lucky ones last night and got some Citra and Amarillo, plus some other pellets I've been meaning to grab (yes Belma was one of them). All the hops I got from them last year were fantastic, really fresh, but this year I placed my main order from Labelpeelers. They allowed you to preorder basically unlimited quantities of Citra, Amarillo, Simcoe, you name it (OK I did not test the "unlimited quantities" thing, but I did not see a limit). It will be my first order from them but this is really the way to do it. I can't blame hopsdirect.com for getting the biggest bang for their buck but I don't like the "lottery" system either.

And when Citra came online they only had 160lbs total. It went so fast there is no way you could have ordered twice.

The same thing happened last year, I was 4 hours late from when they put their hops for sale and missed out on citra and amarillo. This is nothing new, you just missed out on the popular hops.

Citra was sold out in a matter of hours (not minutes, like this year) last year.

And they will have the imported hops, just keep checking back. Farms have just finished the pelletizing process, so imported varieties will be the last to get over here to the states.

What I noticed, was that the amount of centennial available yesterday went up from the day before. Maybe they will release some more?

I'm pissed I missed out on the Citra. I kept checking the site all day, hit refresh at 8:10 last night and they are sold out.

There were more Cascades added last night also, around 4 PM eastern there was roughly 125 pounds and last night I noticed the quantity was around 600 pounds.
