The cost of buying new in Germany may be cheaper than the price to ship over there.

The hops someone should be able to send via USPS to you. UPS or FedEx will be fairly expensive. Again, it may be cheaper to just re-buy in Germany.

Where in Germany? I was over there earlier this year and it was SWEEEEEET driving by the hop fields growing by the road. Got a little chubbie I think.
I have a lot of friends that may be able to give you more info depending on where you are headed.

I'll give you a dollar if you put all your hops in an unmarked baggie and throw them in your carry on bag.

That is a fair distance NW of where I am familiar, but I will ask around. The company I work for is based in Tuttlingen, between Stuttgart and Zurich, and most of my friends are from that area. But who knows, maybe I can scare up some useful info for you.
