Hi I just received some hops that I ordered from B3 and I noticed they don't have the AA on them.
All the hops are pellets. Any guesses as to what this years numbers might be
I have Cascade, Centennial and Kent Goldings

Here is Freshhops current price list and alpha acid content: http://www.freshops.com/pricehop.html
I'm assuming these are for 2005, although they yet could be for last year.
I suspect the hops you received from B3 had a labeling error that inadvertently left off the alpha acid content. You might e-mail or call B3 and they should provide you with the data.

Call them. They should be able to tell you right away what the %AA is. I got a pound of Chinooks from B3 once that were labelled 6%AA. I called them to check it, and they were actually 12%AA.

For a mistake like that, they should refund your money. That would be a major screw up if the person getting the hops didn't get the red flags like you did Pat. I once had some hops sent to me that had two labels. You could just barely see the first label underneath. The label on top read "Tettnang", and the label underneath read "Columbus". I called the shop to ask what was up, and they sent me new verified hops, and let me keep the mystery ones. Both ended up free for their mistake. They told me thanks for noticing, and that they would be more careful when re-labeling mislabeled hops.
