First Hopsdirect Purchase.
« on: January 28, 2010, 05:34:00 AM »
Bought my first 1lb (20oz) bag of leaf hops (U.S. Tett).  Brought a tear to my eye when I saw the bag.

There were more leaves than I was used to seeing though.

Sounds like its time for a second order!  ;)

I ordered my first bulk hops when prices went down last year, and man am I glad I did. In the past I've purchased as needed, by the ounce (gets darn expensive!). Its nice to have everything you need on hand.

mmmmmmm hops.  I should make another order as well, there's a few varieties I'd like to have added to my inventory.  Magnum, Hallertau, and perhaps Amarillo or Northern Brewer.

Anybody know the story on their domestic Magnum pellets?  Looks like all they list is leaf.
