    Might I suggest that rather than bagging up 100g you bag up enough hops to creep in under the postage limit (including envelope of course and the weight of packaging), as postage charges can significantly effect the cost to the purchaser.
    Just guessing here but I think you'' find that 200g of hops would cost the same to post as 100 as they'd fall in the same postage band.

    I would definitely be interested. Again depending on variety.

    Actually, if the hops are cheap enough I'd probably be interested whatever they were. I'm sure I can find a use for any hops as long as the don't taste of onions. I had a horrible IPA that tasted of onions. Not good.

    I sent some hops out today 100g x 10 bags

    To ship 100g of Hops including packaging is around 120g its 120p if its flat enough to fit in the 25mm slot device at the post office :doh: lets not go there thats for whats classed as a large envelope 2nd class

    If said bag does not fit through the 25mm slot its classed as a small parcel and the cost is 280p to 340 i think

    Also the cost of the Polythene Envelope is 40p:thumb:
