A package was waiting for me when I got home. I attempted to order a pound of hops a week or so ago and got the dreaded e-mail..."if we cannot fill your order we will not charge your card" low and behold... 1# 7 oz of cluster pellets were waiting like christmas morning for me.

What do they charge for shipping? I have this aversion to letting someone charge my credit card when I don't know exactly what they are going to charge.

I've ordered from them several times, I've called a few times as well. They have always been up front with prices and answers to my questions. I even had a technical questions (not related to a purchase) and they had one of the "people in the know" call me back to answer my questions.

I'd put them in my "highly rated vendor" category
