Postby alms66 » Wed Dec 10, 2008 11:24 pm

I've got a freezer full of whole leaf hops. I was wondering if anyone would want to purchase some? Find the best price you can, and I'll match it or beat it even, just let me know.

Here's a list of what I have, including AA levels:
(These sold by the pound)

Mt. Hood - 5.8
Fuggle - 6.0
Pacific Gem - 15.0
Sorachi Ace - 14.0
Golding - 5.2
Perle - 9.4
Cascade - 6.8
Hallertauer - 3.6
Willamette - 5.4
Nugget - 12.0 (x2)
Sterling - 7.8 (x2)
Summit - 16.5 (x2)
Crystal - 4.4 (x2)
Liberty - 4.4 (x2)

Currently Open (sold by the ounce)

Do you grow these yourself?
Are they dried and if so how?
How are they packaged?

It must be nice to have a freezer full of HOPS!

No, these aren't homegrown, they're from freshops.com. They are dried and still in the orignal 16oz. plastic bags shipped from freshops, then vacuum sealed in foodsaver bags. From what I've used of it so far, all bags have had anywhere from 1/4oz. to nearly 2oz. extra in the bags.

When I say freezer full, I mean a dedicated, upright freezer FULL of hops...
Yeah, it has it's advantages. :lol:

How old are they? Hops can get cheesy even in the freezer.

About 1.5 years old at this point, but they're also sealed in mylar bags, so they're good - at least I have yet to open one that wasn't still smelling and tasting fresh. Granted, it was a few months before I sealed them, so there was some slight damage done. Nobody's getting my mylar bags though, those things were expensive and are reusable.
