Hi All,

Recently paid £150 for a micro batch kit from this link: Link Removed.

Money taken (paypal) but over 2 weeks later and had nothing delivered and no responses to emails.

Anyone know if they have stopped trading?

Found the site through recommendations from this forum.

Thanks!

Contact paypal asap. If their FB and twitter have been removed that's not good. They would have to do that themselves. You can get small tea urns like that on ebay. Good luck.

PS their address is on their website but no phone number.

Really, what would you expect to pay for that lot of kit?

To be honest you have most of it available in your own kitchen with a few pots & pans,oven and maybe even some muslin cloth or a pillow case.Use a 5 litre water container from Tesco or other for a quid for fermenting in.It's amazing what you can do.
You could also try this kit
http://www.thehomebrewcompany.co.uk/...it-p-2426.html

with an added fermenter
http://www.thehomebrewcompany.co.uk/...rs-c-2_26.html

Honestly the list is endless but it's down to yourself on how comfortable you feel with the process.

Agreed that is a lot for the size batches it would produce. You are better off trying homebrew company or geterbrewed

I bought one of these kits when I decided pots and pans weren't enough (which was two brews in). Does 25 litres and serves me well. Only reason I want to replace is for bigger (50 litre) batches. Just need to decide what I want! £
