    Thanks for the link. I'm currently working on a house bitter which I want to be mostly brewing. Once I've worked out exactly what hops I want to use, this supplier could be my goto for hops buying in 1kg bulk, especially as he seems to be a farmer who specialises in the HB market
    Looking forward I think hops may become quite expensive for us HBers as the pound drops and we leave the EU, so for me buying English hops in bulk may well be the way forward. :thumb:

    Great find and postage is cheap too. Would love some bramblung cross for a English IPA. 2016 harvest too.

    Thanks for the link. Would be interersted in getting some 2016 Cascade. One thing i noticed is they say 5 - 9% AA. I wonder if they test each batch so you know what they are?

    I've got the price list from brewers select. The only problem i can foresee is they only sell them in 5kg packs, thats a lot of hops!

    I would be up for Herkules and Cascade. Prefer leaf hops but would take pellets if thats what the majority want.

    I think the op wasn't suggesting he/she did the transaction.

    I'd sort it if I had a bit more time. Got a vacuum packer too.

    I'm assuming no one wanted to go through with the ordering and vacuum packing the hops? I've found these guys which seem ridiculously cheap! http://www.brewersselect.co.uk/ I've managed to find an old list of prices - http://webcache.googleusercontent.c...t.co.uk/document/32+&cd=1&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=uk

    They have hops under £10 per kilo, and hops like citra and Falconer's Flight at around £20 per kilo, however they need to be bought in 5kg bags. This would more than halve the cost of hops, which is helpful when wanting to brew hoppy IPAs!
