Just gotta pay a compliment
« on: October 01, 2012, 08:49:07 AM »
I recently bought a pound of Willimette pellet hops from someone called Yakimavalleyhops on ebay. They were asking $7.99 plus another $5 for shipping. This works out to 81 cents an ounce which I was happy with. It was a buy it now thing. I put in my order on 9/26 and they were in my mailbox on 9/28.

I generally like US Fuggles in my red ales but I thought Willimette would be a good substitute.

Those are great prices considering how quickly they shipped.

I think I'll be ordering some soon.

Great prices and excellent customer service, plus some hard-to-find varieties. I will definitely be placing a big order as soon as the 2012 crop of pellets is in.
