One pound bags of whole leaf hops - now available!

By Greg 'Swig' Johnson

One of our suppliers recently established a partnership with Hopunion in order to provide a larger hop variety for homebrewers. What this means is that Siciliano's now has access to a wider selection of leaf hops in the Hopunion nitrogen-flushed, sealed bags. We also expect that when this year's harvest comes in, we will have an even greater selection of hops in both leaf and pellet form. Right now the available 1-lb bags of leaf hops are as follows:

    • Ahtanum™YCR1, $14.89/lb.
    • Amarillo®VGXP01, $21.49/lb.
    • 

Cascade, $12.19/lb.
    • 

Centennial, $15.69/lb
    • 

Chinook, $15.69/lb
    • 

Cluster, $12.69/lb
    • 

Columbus, $12.69/lb
    • 

Crystal, $14.89/lb
    • 

Saaz (Czech), $17.99/lb
    • 

Fuggle, $16.69/lb
    • 

German Hallertau, $15.39/lb
    • 

Northern Brewer, $13.99 /lb


    • Sorachi Ace, $21.49/lb
    • 
Summit™, $13.99/lb
    • 

Tettnang, $17.49/lb
    • 

UK Kent Golding, $19.19/lb
    • 

Willamette, $11.89/lb
Bottom line, buying hops in bulk will help frequent brewers save money. For example, one pound of Cascade hops is $12.19, which equates to about $0.76 per ounce. Compare that to $1.69 per ounce when bought individually. We also have a couple long sought-after hop varieties which are now available after an extended absence such as Crystal & Summit, plus a few returning favorites including Amarillo, Ahtanum, and Northern Brewer. So come check out our ever-expanding inventory of homebrewing ingredients and supplies!
