I tend to use these people as they are slightly cheaper than Rob :whistle:
Not much PA selection usually just MO from Crisp, but a good selection of other malts & hops
Not as good a selection as Rob for stuff, but great selection of hops @£2.25/100g

+1 yes, reliable and recommended

I have used them in the past, I remember it as great service too

People assume that Brewing is a strict progression of cause to effect, but *actually* from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint - it's more like a big glass of wibbly wobbly... beery weery... stuff.

I wish they sold pellets! But you can't beat Rob on all things malt!

Anyone know if this place is going ok?

I've sent them emails and tried calling them a number of times and got no response (called different times and days last week)

Not ordered for a couple of months, was/am just about to place another malt order.
Nothing on the web site about holidays is there, that caught me once.

I've picked up from them a few times and they're nice people. Always had good quality hops and malts from them too.

Also if you are a member of Jim's you can get a 5% discount.

I'll probably get told off for that :oops:

The owner managed to put together a nice hoppy ale for me, what do you guys think -

:whistle: :cheers:

I kept missing out on the 5% they offered at weekends, it was usually just AFTER I had placed an order or when I was half way down a sack of malt. :doh:
But hey I could have used an alias :doh:

That looks like an interesting brew Stuart. Wonder why they have PA & MO?
Will certainly be hoppy with 40g at flame out.

Yes I wondered about the use of the PA and MO too. Aren't these virtually the same?

I had a couple of pints of Adnams green bullet last year - delicious..

They ARE the same, MO is a PA. As is Golden Promise and several others.
I would just use 100% MO. Mostly as it is all I have ;-)

That's a kit they are going to put together for me as I couldn't see a really hoppy ale on their standard kit.

I'm also going to order their 'old peculier' clone as I absolutely love that ale.

No idea why there is PA and MO in the ingredients?!?! :scratch:

I placed an order with them some time ago and to avoid delivery fees I asked if I could pick it up from the address on their website as it was in walking distance of a site I was surveying. Timings weren't optimal though, so they let me pick it up from their house on the way to that survey instead.
I only had one issue in that the yeast I ordered wasn't in my package, so I emailed to ask if it had fallen out at theirs or if I might have lost it myself. They found the yeast and posted it to me at no extra cost. Absolutely fantastic service.
