What’s your favorite online source for buying hops in bulk?
Hops Direct and http://freshops.com/. The latter typically has popular varieties long after other vendors have sold out.
I’ve tried a LOT of sources. Both Freshops and Hops Direct are very good, but the absolute, bar none best hops I’ve gotten have come from Hop Heaven. You can find them on eBay. They’ve spoiled me…
Denny, what makes their hops stand out from other sellers?
Just the overall quality. Ted lives in eastern OR and drives over to Yakima to hand select the hops. He packages them himself and rents a freezer to keep them in. It started as a very small operation, but has grown as people learn what great product he has.
Hop heaven has great customer service also, I ordered 5 lbs from him earlier this year and usps showed it had been delivered but I never revived anything. I contacted usps and filed a claim with them and they did nothing, I emailed ted at hop heaven and he shiped out more hops the next day.
I’ve had great success with hopsdirect. I’ve been ordering in bulk from them for several years now. Might have to give Hop Heaven a try after Denny’s recommendation.
Just ran across this hops supplier. Anyone used them before? Seems like they have good prices on pellets.http://www.ritebrew.com/category-s/1942.htm?Click=7532
