Am I the only one here who's having a hard time finding hops?

Each time I want to brew a new recipe, the hops needed are b.o...

I mostly buy from OBK since I'm from Canada...

I was looking to brew the Electric Pale Ale but I can't find Amarillo and Citra hops...

Any idea?

I like buying from OBK, but he runs out of ingredients quite a lot. I always have sacks of base grain, and then buy my specialty grains and hops as I need them (usually for 3-4 batches at a time to save shipping costs) and find that OBK is missing what I need about half the time. I buy stuff from Brewers Pantry in Whitby ON quite often, his prices are slightly higher, but he tends to have stuff in stock better.

I just picked up a new freezer, so I will start buying hops in bulk I think.

Definitely buy in bulk (that's what I do). You can see here for how I store them: http://www.theelectricbrewery.com/parts-list-using?page=11

OBK recently added hops by the pound: http://www.ontariobeerkegs.com/Hops_by_the_Pound_for_Homebrew_Online_Supplies_Canada_s/81.htm?Click=3715

No issues with keeping hops for years this way.

You are right, OBK doesn't have all the ingredients I want to order most of the time...but they are really good for brewery parts.

I do the same as you, I buy my 55 pounds malt locally and specialty grains/hops/yeast from OBK.

But I might be looking to buy hops in bulk instead, I thought hops wouldn't last for more than a year in a freezer.

thanks for the help!

finally I got what I needed from the Brewers Pantry... they aren't cheap but at least they had them in stock.

I will eventually buy in bulk to save money!
