Yup, me too. Very strange. I wonder if you could get away with it. Sounds like they left a little loophole there.

I'm looking forward to checking out Brew Brothers myself. I usually shop at Steinbart, which has been good so far, but the prices advertised online for Brew Brothers are much better. Plus I have that 10% off coupon from the NHC.  ;D

I generally add sugar early in the boil, but that's just so I don't forget about it.  You can add it just about any time, though.  Mix it with some boiled and cooled water to dissolve it first.
Same here, unless the beer has an inordinately high percentage of sugar, but that's not often.

Maybe it is grain dependent?  I checked the Crisp Brown Malt and Canada Pale Malt.
Every single one under Ingredients -> Grain Malts -> Grain Sacks says the same thing for me. Very strange. Maybe time for you to stock up.  ;D

Also, I'm pretty sure grain sacks fall outside the NB flat rate shipping.
I thought so too, and just checked.  Their policy says it might but it is clearly labeled.  The bulk grains I checked didn't say +shipping, and with them in my cart I used the shipping calculator and it gave me $7.99 as an option.  It might change if you went all of the way through the process, but it looks like $7.99 works for at least some of the bulk malts.
Funny, I just did the same thing and had the exact opposite experience. They all say "+ship", and the shipping calculator reflected that. I was going to say maybe it depends on where you live, until I saw you were just up in Redmond.  ???

Good to know. I may give that a try, I may not. Do you happen to know general price ranges? I'm curious if it's worth the trouble seeing as I can get them pretty cheap locally. (GW 2-row: $29. Best pils: $45. Weyermann pils: $39)

I ordered a few sacks earlier this year from North Country and Canada Malting 2-row was $32 + $25 shipping.

Whereas Northern Brewer has Canada Malting 2-row (Pale Ale) for $37.99 + $7.99 shipping.

I think I'll be looking at NB in the future.
Yeah, I think I'm going to stick with going local for this.

its not worth your while - I bought Best Pils for around $34 on my last order and then paid around $25 in shipping.  But your shipping is going to be more I would assume given your locale.
Thanks Blatz. $25 shipping for a single bag? Or for several? If the latter then that isn't bad, but you'r right - if they're shipping from the main warehouse then it would be more for me.

While we're on the topic, is Best that much better than Weyermann? I've heard nothing but rave reviews but haven't tried it yet. Always had good results with Weyermann, and they treated us well when we visited last year too.

$25 per single bag.

I prefer Best to Weyermann, but I have no qualms using Weyermann.  Best just has a richness that Weyermann doesn't.  I've been digging a blend of Weyermann and Best recently in my lighter lagers - ryan6458 turned me on to that - its good stuff!
Thank you sir. Yes, $25/bag more than I can get it for locally. I think I'll try best this time to see if it lives up to the hype. And I like the idea of a blend too.

Wow, Dave, yours are way ahead of mine!  The cold wet weather is just ending here and everything is behind this year.

This. I've gotten more growth in the garden in the last week of warm weather than in the last month or two

They're trying to throw us off the scent with all this farm confusion. Those bastards.  ;D

I'm sure your hops will come in fine, next year.  Raising them is great fun, picking and drying is significant work, but well worth it. 
I've raised them before, with minimal success, at my old house. Hoping these ones do a little better

I thought they weren't selling to homebrewers anymore?


They do if you were a customer prior to the change in policy. In other words if you were "grandfathered in".
I ordered some hops from them a couple years ago. So I guess that counts. Do they have a price list anywhere? I think they have a warehouse in Vancouver, WA - right across the river. I wonder if I could go there and pick some up.

i checked on their prices and i could buy from northernbrewer and pay for the shipping for less than they charged.
Who is "they"? North Country?

I would totally be down for that. Mission: ImHOPsible.
That's quite the drive for you.  ;)

Yakima Chief, the people with the patent to Amarillo, are in actually in Sunnyside. You can smell them from the freeway when they are processing them.
Well, close enough.

Seeing as you bear an uncanny resemblance to Bruce Campbell, I vote you as the most able to pull of the caper.
Lol. Go all Ash on them with your chainsaw hand.

It was not my intention to start a "FREE  DA AMARILLO HOP" insurgency....... :-X
Too late.  ;D

Hell it's only a few hours drive to Yakima. Who's in for an Amarillo raid?  ;)
