Would it be worth finding a bulk hop supplier and clubbing together
It was running before, but no outcome at the end. I would be happy if we could sort something.
Most supplies need to have an account with them and usually it's only the British hops that are available.
I found a place selling 5kg bags of hops, not all UK and grain at ÃÂ£16 a sack. http://www.brewersselect.co.uk/ingredients Also you can order bulk organic hops from NZ on ebay. I would definitely be interested.
Looks good, although no prices for hops or delivery
Geterbrewed do bulk hops in 1kg lots
I think Malt Miller does too but I cant find where on their site
Edit: HBC do it too
Hers some charles faram prices they are out of date (Jan) but it shows how cheap they can be from Ã¯Â¿Â½ÃÂ£4.80 per kg, note prices are per Kg but must be bought in 5Kg quantities.

Here is what they currently have in stock http://www.charlesfaram.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/Hop-availability-list.pdf
I'll contact Charles faram and see what I can do. Any particular varieties? I suppose we will be limited to a couple of types at one time depending on how many people are interested
Some new Zealand ones
How are you going to package them?
As a suggestion to Leon's question, when I did the hop taster packs I used zip lock mylar bags like these
Cascade leaf, i could take 1kg or( or less) more depending on demand and happy to buy some never tried before. Cheers Chris
I have an account with brewers select and live nearby so no delivery charges.
I'd be happy to find some prices...
The only issue i have is packaging them, i don't have a vac pack.
Bittering hops, like Columbus or Hercules would be great plus some Cascade, Centennial or Citra would be superb. Will watch this thread with interest.
See MyQul's post below.
As Mentioned i used zip lock mylar bags. You could also chuck a couple of oxygen eaters in there too. This would act the same as a va packer.
I've asked brewers select for the current price list
That's a great idea. Will watch and see how this develops.

That would be good, delivery puts the price up a good amount
