Is it possible to buy hops in bulk? Under the hop shortage I wouldn't think you could..I'd like to start to buy my ingredients in bulk.

The nice thing about hopsdirect and freshops is that, for most varieties they sell, they are also the growers. So you know you are getting freshly harvested hops (this time of year, anyway) that have been handled properly.

The nicest hops I ever had were from hopsdirect and freshops. I've received some less than satisfactory hops from some of the better known online HBSs, including morebeer.

I didn't see Saaz on either site. Is that a hard hop to get?
