My HBS doesn't carry them and I wanted to make BMs wheat this weekend. Anyone know a good substitute?
maybe i'll post an ad:

per midwest:

Has a unique mahogany/walnut wood aroma, with some resinous/candilike character and some citrus. Substitutes: Pride of Ringwood with a touch of Goldings and Cascade. This hop will be hard to find in 2008.

I have found Simcoe to be pretty unique. I am down to about 6 oounces and am concerned if they will last me through the year.

You're SOL. Simcoe is a trademark hop that is relatively new. It was bred for it's specific flavor.

Simcoe, Sorachi Ace, and Saaz are hops that have no substitue.
