Hop Yard Sale
« on: April 15, 2013, 08:17:11 AM »
FYI - Hops Direct is having their Hop Yard sale as we speak. Several varieties available at 6 bucks or less per pound. http://www.hopsdirect.com/hop-yard-sale-2013/

If you haven't tried Ultra before, I highly recommend it. It's a nice substitute for Saaz or Tettnang, with nice fruitiness and floral/herbal notes along with some Saaz-like spiciness. Plus, it's fairly high alpha for a noble-type hop. (7.6% this year, last year was 9%)

I know. I still have about 16 or 17 pounds in the freezer. I wanted to get some Apollo and Comet, but I just don't have the room for whole hops right now. Stuck to Ultra pellets, and going to try out Legacy.

I didn't pull the trigger.  There's just no room in the freezer at home.

I need a dedicated freezer for brewing.  Someday.

Nice, stocked up on some Saaz and Mittelfruh.  Dangit, they were out of Centennial.
Thank you BEER!
