FYI:

Farmhouse Brewing has 2012 Simcoe pellets in stock. They do offer pounds for $19.00.

They also have the very rare 2012 Nelson Sauvin pellets at an almost reasonable $23.00 a pound.

I ordered both today

I was listening to Stan Hieronymus' presentation and my wife overheard. She said Stan sounds like a cartoon character of what a beer nerd would sound like. She meant that in the nicest way possible.

He does write good books that have been well researched. I look forward to his hop book.

Stan Hieronymus is definitely my favorite beer author. I love that he doesn't pretend to be an "expert" on anything, so he seeks out a lot of different experts to inform his views, then he synthesizes that to a clear, concise form.

Already sold out!

They do have some Riwaka in stock, though. (limit one 4oz bag)

Now how do you know that?

I can't believe Simcoe and Amarillo are selling out so quickly, it's depressing :(  I want to get my hands on at least a pound of Simcoe this year.

I got my hops from fresh hops.  They look wonderful, but, as I feared, they're not sealed well.  I think my best plan would be to split them into smaller packages with a vacuum sealer and keep them frozen.  I'm hoping they'll stay good for a year.  Where's nitrogen when ya need it.

I always do this with my hops from freshops and they stay nice and fresh for up to 2 years, sometimes more. I'm still using zues from last year and they are great.

Yep... Also, Farmhouse keeps releasing more Amarillo and Simcoe, so keep an eye on their FB and website. It's a small operation and I don't think he wants to get overwhelmed with orders all at once. Very reasonable pricing too. I don't remember exactly what I paid, but Simcoe was under 20 bucks a pound.

Well, sheeeeeeit, I'm not on Fakebook.  I'll have to keep a look out other ways.
