2015 LAGERS Bulk Hop Buy

It’s time for the first of the My Old Kentucky Homebrew’s Club Bulk Buys of 2015.  This bulk buy is for pounds of Pellet and Leaf Hops.
I compiled a list of which pounds are currently available and found the average price for each country.
Hop prices are on the rise so this is a good time to stock up.  Over the next few weeks our hop prices will go from $1.99/ounce to $2.25 and $2.99/ounce to $3.50.
Please fill out and return the attached form to My Old Kentucky Homebrew either in person or to myoldkentuckyhomebrew@yahoo.com.
All forms need to be submitted by end of business on March 29th.  I will place the order March 30th and should arrive the following Wednesday.
Thank you!
