search for crystal hops

Post by bredmakr » Thu Nov 06, 2003 8:26 am

Does anyone have a homebrew supplier that carries crystal whole/flower/leaf hops? I'm not looking for substitutes (liberty, hallertau, norther brewer) I want to use the real thing for a clone beer I'm working on. All I can find is pellets and I really like to use whole hops.

Crystal hops are wonderful. I have used them in a few brews and am blown away by their flavour/aroma. Unfortunately my HBS has stopped carrying them for some reason. Too bad for me. Let me know where you end up finding a source.
