I just got a box with 5 lbs from Hops Direct.  I'm not sure what I was thinking.  I always do that when I order hops.  That will take some creative arranging of freezer space.  Luckily some of it is pellets.

I don't have 32lbs, but I have more than I need.

I have more than I need too, probably 12 lbs.  The problem is the 30 lbs of salmon that are also in the freezer.

You need to brew some IPAs Denny!

Start brewing in barrels and you'll find 32 pounds not nearly enough ;-)

It depends on the beer you're making, right? ;)

Ah, true. With my centennial ale I laugh at Jim Koch's "more than a pound per barrel" hop utilization. But not by much.
