I know these are in very short supply this year, so thought I would let everyone know they are available at the-home-brew-shop.co.uk. They state on website only a 1/3 of what they ordered was made available so it will not last long.

I have got stocked up! Not sure if they will be available on other sites so not taking the risk.

A fine beer may be judged with only one sip, but it's better to be thoroughly sure.

Got 200g this aft from my LHBS in Leyland. £6.99 for 100g. Not cheap but they will last a while. Owner reckons they won't be around long and stock from NZ is already sold out.

They've always been very difficult to get hold of as whole hops. I've brewed with them once but they were pellets and blocked my hop stopper. I'd love to use them again but need whole flowers.

You might want to try Wibblers Brewery, they may have some :whistle: I'm down there next weekend, and will be having a good root and paw through the hop store :whistle: :D

I love this hop and always buy a few packs when it's around..... I think I've got 600g of pellets in my freezer at the moment.
Amarillo is quite hard to find at the moment as well........fortunately I'm well stocked on those too.

None listed on the Wibblers website. As an Essex boy (but a Yorkshire offcumdem for the last 20 years) I'll have to pop in one day when I'm in the area.
