Yakima Valley Hops sends out and e-mail about Cashmere hops for $11/# and next thing I know I buy 4 pounds of hops.  pound each of Cashmere, Simcoe, Saaz and Spalt Select.  I do not feel that bad because I sold off my tilt yesterday so these are like free :)

Since my house APA is based around it I need to keep it on hand.

Any opinions on Cashmere?  I picked up some and read great reviews and am wondering if it can stand alone in the finish or if it needs a friend.

I'm thinking of picking up some more hops. What are the best options other than hop heaven? I'm thinking of trying to maybe get some stuff Ted didn't offer this year.

Maybe better to wait until fall? Not sure. Getting pretty hot out there now and I wonder how they'd travel.

They have a coconut tropical thing going on and are a little woody. They seem to be a love it or hate it kind of thing. Definitely a unique and interesting variety tho

No


I guess short term it's probably not that bad for hops...

I'm kind of surprised they haven't sent me anything yet as a new subscriber but I'm not seeing anything.

Just bought 8# of hops! Geez, went way overboard. I accidentally mentioned EWW on Ken's board where most do not know him. Do you think he can help me with my addiction?

Last time I ordered from YVH, I ordered on a Sunday and received Tuesday. FROM THE OPPOSITE COAST! The only reason I used Hops Direct this time was to get Nelson Sauvin. YVH only had 2019 NS for $4/2oz (only option). I got 8 oz of 2020 for $10 at HD.

drez - watch your inbox in case yakima valley doesn't e-mail me the hot deals!

 

 

so next week is going to be hot as balls.  I read some stuff online that tells me the hops would be fine if they were properly purged of O2.  is that the general view of the folks around here too?

Will do.  

 

That is my view about it and YVH ships fast so the heat should be OK.
