Default No Hop Shortage Here...

...at least not for about a year+.

I just got my hop shipment in and tucked them all away in their Foodsaver slumber for a long winter's night.

Here's what 5 lbs. of hops looks like in 2, 1 1/2, and 1 oz bags:


Here they are packed away in the freezer:



I have to say, my wife was a real sport through all of this. With taking over the bottom basket of the freezer and, well...that's not my writing on the bags!!!


Cheers!

I was weighing corn sugar on a digital scale in front of my kitchen window last week and thought, "this would look REALLY bad if the neighbors looked out their window right now..."

Yeah, my SWMBO always worries that our neighbours will see me brewing on the deck and think I am making up a batch of crystal meth or something. All those little baggies of hops and corn sugar don't help.

Your own hop basket in the freezer! That's a very understanding SWMBO.

I think I'm covered for a while, but these stay in the freezer of the beer fridge in the garage.

Dangit I should have ordered some EKGs and Hersbrucker a while back. I can't find them anywhere. I do have 4 lbs of hops on the way, though - Cascade, Amarillo, and Ahtanum.

looks like a bunch of twenty-sacks

I don't brew enuf to buy in bulk like that yet. once I have my house beers figured out, then I'll know what hops I MUST have on hand.
