Am I the only one who shops at http://yakimavalleyhops.com ? Good prices and I usually have my hops in 2 days. Plus they take paypal.

Plus great service and a good selection. And they are very responsive to questions, especially on their Facebook page. I'm a big fan.

Hopsdirect is starting to release 2012 pellets this Friday, starting with Centennial and Cascade. Farmhouse Brewing Supply has 2012 pellets of Simcoe and Amarillo already available.
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.

Freshops still has leaf of both, with up to five pounds of Simcoe. I'm well stocked on both, but it's always tempting to buy more :)

I'm hoping Hopsdirect has some Citra pellets this year. I've done an APA that's got a ton late that my wife loves.

I'm wondering if Hops Direct will be imposing the 1-lb limit on various varieties like Amarillo, Centennial...

they've already said they would...

Quote from: hopsdirect
Please be advised, some hops have a limit of 1 pound per customer, per variety. This year was a light crop year and we want as many of you to get some as possible.

The happiest people don’t necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the best of everything they have.

Nice, thanks for the heads up.  Picked up a lb of Centennial and threw in a lb of Belma to make the shipping worthwhile.  For $6 a lb might as well try it out.

Hops Direct released a bunch more pellets tonight, including Amarillo and Citra. They're going fast, though.
