Just noticed Core Brewing Concepts seem to have Citra & Amarillo hops on their website, also they are doing free shipping. (always nice)

They don't say what season.. though they have just come in.

Wrong section as well - Retail shop is for retaillers to post their products.

Cheers Ross

I have some Amarillo ordered... Not having high hopes for them being a good year but will report back once they arrive.

It's funny how we run out of the hops, then out of the wood work every month there is a magic supply.

There's plenty of other yummy hops to brew with. Just ignore the retailers trying to flog off "limited supply" hops for ridiculous prices. :beerbang:

IIRC, I bought a pound of Citra for $12 in 2010.

These prices, once you add in postage, are the same as buying it in 90g packs from CB.

I see good old Cascade is still $11 a pound. I'm over "designer hops".

I'm with you Gibbo, in fact I didn't think Citra was anything outstanding anyway. Just because something is in short supply sure does not make it something wonderful all of a sudden.

Citra hard to come by? It's not the end of the world is it? Is it? :eek:

Cascades great, it's my favourite hop to use. :icon_drool2:

One of the C hops is on shortage and I have quite enjoyed making a few decent brews using Centennial. I hope it takes a while for this shortage to show.

US cascade is nice but I like our Cascade all the same.

Not experienced enough in other hops to care either way yet but I also quite like Simcoe in commercials I buy.

I like Citra, and considering I usually do buy my hops in 90g packs from CB, getting a pound of inflated-price Citra plus two and a half pounds of regular-priced hops that I frequently use still works out cheaper in the long run and I can keep brewing the beers I like.

I could, alternatively, not buy any Citra and complain about it being overhyped and declare a boycot on trendy hops but I think the first option suits me better.

I prefer NZ Cascade over the USA stuff (more zing), and don't like Centenial - but I think Hops Direct 2009 Centenial was not actually hops, but pelletised lawn clippings.

ODed on Citra a while back.

Haven't tried NZ Cascade but I prefer the US stuff to Aus Cascade. Will have to check the NZ stuff out. Ended up with a large amount of US Cascade (not a bad thing) so have mostly been using a lot of that with a few other varieties.
