I just received a batch of hops that I purchased online from hopsdirect.com. It is so much cheaper to buy hops online, than from my LHBS. The minimum order is a pound and the price is something like 1/5 of my LHBS, so I a got total of 4#, divided in Centennial, Crystal, Hallertau and Goldings. I then used my foodsaver machine to vacuum pack in 1oz bags, then into the freezer. I should have hops for a year of brewing, for only $50. What about that? By the time I run out of hops, I should be harvesting my own hops that may yield over 3# next year.
