Damn! Now I know what the word is all about regarding the hops market. I have not bought hops since the end of October, but when I was shopping for my next batch, I see the market has skyrocketed with very diminishin supply.
I just sent an order for hops to Williams Brewing San Leandro CA. The average cost $2 per oz. with 6 oz limit on most hops. They have Willamette $10.90 for 6 oz. I ordered misc. grains with this & shipping total was $7.50. Now I have hops to brew through the summer. Anybody find any cheaper?
