I just ordered a lb. each of cascade, chinook, and wgv-uk. Avg. 18 dollars/lb. with shipping. Not bad at all.

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 wont' lie.. I love me some of the big guys.. Amarillo is a weakness. I'd stuff my pockets with it to just smell it all day if I could.

But I used some 7C's in a nice sized IPA a few months ago, tossed in some cascade in the mix with it and it was one of the nicer beers I've made. Has all the qualities I love in an IPA. I wouldn't be upset if I had to use it in all my IPAs.

I too have made some really nice IIPA's using Falconers Flight, 7C's, Zythos, and these hops are readily available and reasonable so we use them quite a bit.

With Mosaic set to come online at least the Citra shortage should ease a bit hopefully.

I recall in years past that Puterbaugh/HD used to send out a "heads up" email that let you know when the hops were going to be available online. I didn't see that this year - maybe I overlooked it. That was how I was able to get in on the big 3 in years past.

Good to hear that the imported hops will be available later on but also a bit strange in that the Aussie/NZ harvest was a while ago I thought. I have been purchasing Nelson, Galaxy, etc. from other places for some time now unless they were 2011 crop.

Is mosaic similar to citra?? I heard it was more simcoe than anything. I'm tempted to get a pound of it.

You might be right about Southern Hemi hops - I didn't factor that into my thoughts. English and Czech, I would assume, should be available shortly.

My recollection was that Mosaic was described as "Citra on steroids" by a hop expert but I could be wrong. From what I remember reading,Mosaic should help with the Citra shortage but that Simcoe will be I short supply until the additional plantings mature enough to increase production.

Nix what I just said about Mosaic. You are correct - it is a Simcoe/Nugget type of hop not Citra. I need to find the article on the article on the Citra sub which has the name of the new hop.

Meridian is the name of the new hop that I was thinking of. Very Citra like according to reports.

They posted a heads up on their Facebook page. With five minutes to sell out barely anyone ever had a chance...I hope label peelers pulls through wi my pre order.

Probably closer to January, no? Seem to recall that's about the time their imported pellets started showing up last year.

Edit: On the plus side, First Gold is available which I've heard great things about. Ordered a lb for experimenting with yesterday.
