Really? Costs me the same as all the others here. 2 cents/gram (CAD). Buying form ubrews.

$1.50 oz for all hops at a store in Vancouver.

Not sure I've seen whole hops of Saaz around here though.

When I bought my grains I forgot to ask about buying hos of him (Brew pub), I had a bunch of Columbus/goldings on hand so I used those. I use a lot of tett, haller. and saaz.

My local stores do charge a different price for differnt kinds of hops. With the noble hops costing the most. Since Saaz is a noble hop it costs a lot more than say chinook. Nearly double. That may not be the case where you are but I can get chinook for less than 1.50 per oz. Of course since your 1.50 per oz is canadian money it is proably the same price anyway and you are still ahead of me in having cheaper hops. I guess I am just getting screwed here because Saaz is like 1.80 american dollars an oz here or more actually.

Any Ubrews in your area? Do they even have those in the States?

Anyway, I find Ubrews tend to sell hops for a lot cheaper.
I pay less than 60 cents a oz. Compared to homebrew stores $1.50/oz.

I never heard of UBrew so I don't think they are near me at all. Are they a mail order company? Then again knowing American laws if they don't have a store in the USA they might or might not be able to ship to me from Canada. Our laws about drugs and booze are strange, outdated and harsh and they do extend to the ingreadents for homebrewing.

A Ubrew is where you go to a place to brew your own beer. In BC you legally have to pitch the yeast your self, and you have to do the bottling in store, yourself, though using their bottling/canning equipment. There is supposed to be no drinking on premises except for "sampling puposes".

They usually use bulk axtract and specialty malts but there are some that do AG. UVins are the same but do wine only. Most Ubrews do beer and wine.

I don't have any LHBS in my area, but 5 ubrews and about 8 or so Uvins.

Ubrews usually have two types of customers. People with busy schedules who want to brew decent beer, or people who want to make there own megaswill at a cheap price. Which makes sence here since beer is so bloody expensive due to very high Provincial liquor taxes. Mega swill is $20 and up a case. (17 USD). Like each State in the US, each Province is different regaridng liquor laws and taxes.

Price ranges but is roughly $120 CAD for 46 Litres of beer.

I understand now. I thought he was naming a chain of homebrewing shops. There are such places in the USA where you can brew using their equiptment but none near where I live. In fact the one I know if is like 3,000 miles from my house so that is out of the question.

I can buy a pound of Saaz hops via mail order cheaper than I can at my local homebrew supply shops. I should have said that. However I must say that even the mail order companies do have a different price for differnt types of hops so it isn't just the locals. And once again a pound of Saaz is going to cost more than a pound of say chinook.

Saaz almost always will cost more than any other type hops. Your LHBS is good for purchases unless you havea big order or something they don't carry. Shipping charges can really add to price.

Then i could finally buy the keg and AG setup I've wanted.

If you undercut the locals where I am you might just have a good business there.

I just ordered some hops from Freshops.com. Their prices are $0.68 for most varieties, and $0.80 for premium.

I ordered 20oz and the price came to about $1/oz with shipping.
