The Timothy Taylor Landlord thread in the Commercial Beer Reviews subforum got me thinking about buying a few lbs of English hops. The last time I purchased English whole hops from Hops Direct (years ago), they were cheesy, and unusable.
So, now I'm considering rolling the dice and buying some English pelletized hops. Maybe they will be fresher?
Has anyone here recently purchased English hops, whole or pelletized from Hops Direct? How was the quality? Is there a better source for English hops?
