I have a friend who grows hops commercially (most for the BMCs) and he has supplied me with far more than I could ever hope to use in time, so I'm trying to make sure that the extra doesn't go to waste. I have the following available for trade, preferably for other varietals (pellets or leaf, I'm not picky, and doesn't have to necessarily be and oz for an oz). All are whole cone, from this year (2012), picked and dried as is standard commercially, and have been stored in zip lock bags with the air squeezed out in the freezer literally from within a few hours of picking (not quite as good as vacuum sealing, but they should still be in very good shape). I do not
know the exact alpha acid percents, unfortunately.
14 oz Nugget (high alpha, excellent storage properties)
5 oz Mt Hood (low alpha, noble aroma, great Hallertau replacement)
6 oz Sterling (moderate alpha, very Saaz-like)
6 oz Super Galena (super high alpha, excellent storage properties, great general bittering hop)
Anyways, if you're in the Portland, OR area and are interested in any of these, let me know. I'm an IPA soul, so I tend to like things like Cascade (I looooovveee Cascade), CTZ, Chinook, Citra, Simcoe, etc. but let me know whatever you have. 2012 is obviously preferred.
