Hops Direct
« on: October 12, 2018, 06:37:46 PM »
My order of new, 2018 crop, whole-cone hops from Hops Direct/ Puterbaugh Farms arrived today,  just in time for tomorrow's brew.   Every single "pound" I've ever had from them has come in a few ounces over weight!  Can't complain about that.  Not to mention quality is as good as you could ask for,  and great prices, too.  Just thought I'd share my experience.   (Have never bought pellets from them,  so can't offer a testimonial there.)

I have no complaints about anything I've gotten from Hops Direct, except for Belma. Their write-up sounded so good, but it is about as close to flavorless as you can get in a hop. Everything else has been top-notch quality.

It tastes the way they describe it but it has a very gentle flavor. You need to use a lot of it and carefully choose its companions because other hops will drown it out.
