Got some fantastic deals on at the moment.

I ordered the stout kit and the summit kit late on friday afternoon and it was delivered monday morning.

Really?

£13:50 for a complete mash kit (Grains, Yeast, Hops and whirlflock) seems cracking value to me.

I couldn't by the hops for that price on my Citra brew let alone the entire kit.

From all the places I looked, this seemed by far the best value for mash kits.

I've used the Oregon Stout and the Smoked Beer, the stout was exceptional.
I think the prices are reasonable and you don't have annoying bits leftover. But I would prefer a £1 off n buy the right liquid yeast.

If you go to their .IE site rather than .CO.UK and buy in Euros with PayPal it'll probably work out even cheaper. It did for me when I made my six-monthly order.

My future plans include not much

Well that tells me, £13.50, and even £11.66, are not bad, true. My initial glance had focused on the £18-£20 kits which seemed predominant, and the 1 link i followed detailed a basic 2 hop brew..

:D
I was hoping you was going to point me somewhere even cheaper! :lol:

I'm not really keen on bulk buying grains and hops, so these kits are really ideal for me.

They said they are getting the Citra kits back in stock soon. If they are knocking the complete kit out for £13 or £14 then I really think that's a good deal as I really struggled to find anyone that even had citra stock... and when they did, it's was around the £6 mark for 100g (I needed about 200g) so just the hops alone would set me back £12, add the grains and yeast in then it would be knocking on for over £20.

The Worcester Hop Shop does English style beer kits even cheaper.

But the HBC kits are great value and look like interesting beers. Possibly more base grain too.

Ive had a few ag kits from the Worcester hop shop, who are pretty reasonably priced circa £11 for uk ale/bitter clone kits..
