Done Jeff, for 6 oz of the Styrian pellets.

Chris, is the 3AAU German and is it a 16 oz bag you'd be willing to break up? I have 4 oz of the Centinneal left after Jeff's trade if you want to trade those. I think they qualify as high. :)

Done.

I'm not 100% sure it's German-grown. I'll check and see what I can find out. If it is I do not mind breaking up the bag.

Seems odd to ask now if 9-10% AA hops are high alpha. Seems not too long ago, Chinook's 11-12% was the crazy high alpha. Now with new cultivars at 18% AA, is Centennial the new medium dual purpose hop?

I copped an oz of Summit a couple of weeks ago that is 18.5%.

Who needs hops?

Later this week I'm placing an order for hops at Puterbaugh Farms, http://www.hopsdirect.com/hops/pellethops.html. Their pellets prices are pretty good. For example, their Styrian Goldings is one of their more expensive hops, and at the 1# quantity, it's $.89/oz.

They are packaged in a good foil bag, and I simply squeeze the air out after getting an ounce or two, seal it with a clothespin, and store them in a freezer.

If anyone wants to piggyback on my order and split the shipping, let me know. I'll place the order around mid-day on Friday.

I have been growing my own hops this year Cascades did very well propably more than I will need. I got one type of hop that grows better and faster than the Cascade but not sure what type it is has a great aroma and quite large and abundant cones on it. Does anyone Know of a way to tell the type or is it a guessing game and process of elimination?

I am also growing some Pride of Ringwood,Hallertauer, Fuggles, and Goldings.

Cascade are the most abundant this year with a few Prides and some Hallertauer.

Fuggles and Goldings are in the first year growth so maybe better next year.

Probably a guessing game, but if it is one you planted/got from mail order supply, it should be a process of elimination. Follow this link http://freshops.com/hop-growing/rhizome ... riety_list
Just taking a guess for this area and what grows as well as Cascade, but with large cones, you might have Centennial, or Magnum.

I think it is almost time to harvest the hops, I need to vacuum seal them without buying a vacuum packer, does anyone have any suggestions for that? Also.. fresh (wet) hop brewing? Ive been thinking about it, but have heard that using fresh hops makes your beer taste like cut grass. From what I've read there are"two things to remember when using fresh (wet) hops: Use them within 48 hours of picking and plan on 5-8 times as much by weight as you would dried hops." Any experiences?

I made a wet hop ale in December that I used my homegrown hops in. After picking I vacuum packed them and stuck them in the freezer. I used the entire harvest of Centennial and Cascades for the year. Something like 2 1/2 # of hops. I I figured their alpha's 1-2 pts lower than their average low, and used basic 5 oz wet = 1 oz dry. I didn't dry hop with them, only used in the boil, and figured to use all I had on hand for the latest flavor, and aroma hopping additions.
There wasn't the grassy notes that I thought there would be with the hop mass. I will follow this same procedure again.

Thanks for the help. Going to do some more research and try to figure them out

Not exactly a hop exchange issue, but of interest, perhaps you received this email, too:

http://campaign.r20.constantcontact.com ... LRPQ%3D%3D

The upshot of this is: no pre-orders, there will be limits on ordering.

I highly recommend these folks. If you're planning on buying hops this year or next, I'd recommend you go ahead and make your order now.

Several of us have gone together in the past to save on shipping.
