I never thought that receiving a shit load of hops in the mail could make me this happy! I have been wanting to order in bulk and if you read my hop storage post, you know I have been getting ready for it. Well, they finally arrived (last week)!
There was a great deal going on for 20% off orders of 4 oz of hops or more so I decided to pull the trigger. I really liked the option of ordering 4 oz’s at a time (and saving) because I am not sure what hops I could use pounds of. They also have flat rate shipping so I caught myself going over 2lbs of hops (in 4 oz increments) easily. I played with their shipping calculator a bit and I got up to 128 oz of hops and the $8.99 shipping still hadn’t changed! I think the 4 oz discount was a promotion but they are currently giving a discount on 8oz of hops or more.
I ordered 4 oz of the following hops:
- Falconer’s Flight
I did get to use some warrior in my IPA I made last week and I got to try out the jar sealer with the leftovers:
Works great! I got my dry hops ready in a jar and sealed up the leftovers from that, too.
Maybe ordering hops by the el bee (lb) soon will make sense someday, but for now 4-8 oz at a time if fine for me.
I think I waited for about 3-4 days for my hops to arrive. They were shipped from Indiana to Arizona so I don’t think that was too bad for flat rate shipping. I will definitely be ordering from Great Fermentations again. If you do buy from Great Fermentations, use code “LKSNIFFS” at checkout and let them know I sent you. Cheers!
