I just bought some Citra hops (pellet) on Amazon for $0.15/oz. Waaay too cheap. Should I be worried?

What was the total cost? I'd imagine you got gouged on the shipping.

Yeah, but I see $5 shipping so that would make it $5.15 per ounce.

I just tried plugging 7 of them into my Amazon basket. $1.05 for hops and $34 for shipping. If you get free shipping, great deal and a reputable seller (Midwest)

I bought 6 ounces, and the shipping was $7.85. The total cost was around $9. Still a great deal for 6 ounces. I hope they aren't old stock that they're trying to get rid of. Yesterday they had them listed at $0.50/oz. Strange.

I can't speak to the specifics of this deal, but I've noticed that many online vendors are clearing out 2011 hops, and some are selling 2010 hops -- especially amarillo. Many places don't list the year on their hops which really irritates me. I don't think its unreasonable to expect a vendor to sell the most recent year's hops unless otherwise noted. I just quit shopping at places that don't list the year. It makes a pretty big difference.

Looks like Morebeer has them for .50/oz when the last 3 run out of MW.
