I should have put my order in this morning when I checked at 6:30. The Amarillo, US Goldings, and Citra are off the board.
No Simcoe offered either. Maybe I can catch them in pellets.

I have several pounds of leaf hops on the way. Truth be told, I was only in the market for Amarillo and Simcoe, but since I was all-in on shipping costs and with the run on hops, I decided to pick up an extra pound of Simcoe (Freshops) and a pound each of Sorachi Ace and German Hallertau (Hopunion via Label Peelers). I've verified that all are 2011 crops. If anyone wants some of these, the cost per ounce (my cost with shipping) is $2 for the Simcoe, $1.20 for the Sorachi Ace and $1.00 for the German Hallertau. Just a reminder, these are leaf hops.

Update as of 10/18/11:
Simcoe 8 oz available
Sorachi Ace 8 oz available

I take 1/2# Simcoe and also pay you for the 3 ozs. I already owe you.
Don

You can pay for the 1/2#. The other was in exchange for the yeast.

Here's what's on Hops Direct today regarding pellets:
Monday, Oct. 24, 2010, we will be releasing part of our domestic pelleted hops, as we are still in the process of pelleting. We are sorry we are unable to "hold" orders to be added onto later when more varieties are released. Our pelleted hops will have a limit of 1 pound per customer per variety. We will not be taking pre-orders. As our phone lines are very very busy, we encourage you to place your orders online, as this is the quickest easiest way to place an order. Please email questions as well. We thank you for your patience as it may take a few more days than usual to get your order shipped and on its way to you. As always, thank you we appreciate your business... Puterbaugh Farms

I will take as much Hallertau as you would like to spare...

Label Peelers (www.labelpeelers.com) is out of Kent, Ohio. They get their hops from HopUnion. HopUnion indicated that nearly all their leaf hops are from 2011 crops and by mid-November most of their pellet hops will be as well. Label Peelers offers a large variety, prices were very competetive, and they ship fairly fast (they shipped my order on Saturday and I received it Monday via USPS Priority).

Don and Michael, I will pack your hops this weekend and have them for you at next Wednesday's meeting. Let me know if you won't be attending or if you need them earlier.

I will be out of town on Wednesday. I will try to get Don the money before the meeting. If not I will get with you end of next week to make the exchange...

I feel like I am in the French Connection... exchanging rolls of money for small baggies of goodies so I can get my fix..

Michael, there is absolutely no hurry in getting me the money so don't go out of your way. If you like I can give the "product" to Don or I can hold it. Either way, just bring the cash the next meeting you attend.

Ordered a pound each of 2011-crop Citra and Amarillo from HopsDirect today; still no Simcoe or
Willamette though.

Trouble finding a pound of Fuggles also.
