hops direct stock
« on: August 29, 2011, 10:51:41 AM »
And I'm not talking 'bout an IPO (but maybe an IPA)

Does anyone know when/if HopsDirect will start getting new supplies of imported hops (I'm looking at you, Hallertauer and Saaz).

thanks

imported generally arrive after the first of the year, based on my observations from previous years.

I think I got my EKG from them just before Christmas.  The German and Czech came in after the New Year, as Paul says.

They responded to my e-mail as to when the EKG were coming in.  If that helps you plan, e-mail them after Thanksgiving.  Right now they might be a little busy with the harvest.

I've ordered from them but never seem to have been put on their email list so I sent them a note and asked to be put on, hopefully the newsletters contain some info . . . ?

Also depends on where they are imported from. (i.e. hops from Australia or New Zealand vs those imported from Europe.)  I just received an order of Galaxy, which I'm anxious to try.

You are correct.  I have a pound of Galaxy to put to use also.
