Default How much is to much $$ for hop types?.....

I know some hop types are in more demand than others, when do you say no thanks to a certain variety because of price????

Simcoe $1.60 for an oz!?

Is that the usual for that hop?????

I see Amarillo selling for $2.99/oz. Even though most places are sold out by people quickly hoarding it, the price gouging is disappointing because I am sure the hop merchants didn't gouge quite the same way.

I quickly checked a couple sites for Simcoe and one is $1.55/oz and the other is $1.85/oz. Then there is shipping so $1.60 doesn't seem out of line.

I buy pounds and haven't paid more than $20 a pound (Amarillo and Citra included) so I guess if it's more than $20 I'll find another hop that will work just fine.

Seems like a great price when you factor in the exchange rates. That would be around $1.35 US. Just curious, what are some typical hop and grain prices there?

After doing the math...... it does work out slightly cheaper than buying here.
I guess what kills it is the $20 shipping cost.

Ill just bite my lip and buy some

Being next to Northern Brewer is nice because they have a good stock and prices aren't completely ridiculous. Most I've paid was $3 and ounce I think for Galaxy hops. Maybe it was $2.5 or something, but it was worth it.
