You can achieve exactly the same result or better with a teaspoon, a funnel, and a bag of table sugar, and its cheaper
Plus you can vary the quantity of priming sugar going into the bottle to suit the beer style.

That's fine with me. They've got great feedback and seem to go bout their business very well. I love Geterbrewed but I also like giving my business to the little guy if the service is good.

I too use GEB for grains but I think I'll be buying from CML for hops from now on as they have a massive variety, are cheap and have no P&P so I can buy just one pack of 100g if I want without getting stung for shipping costs

The shipping costs of some websites really puts me off using them.

Exactly. It's a little embarrassing that more websites aren't very flexible when it comes to delivery. I understand that grain is heavy like, but 8 shouldn't feel like I need to stock up on hops with every order so I don't get stung on delivery.

I think I'll be ordering more from these guys. They are asking people on Facebook which rarer hop varieties they want them to start stocking.

Hey Leon103. Crossmyloof's US Pale is actually packed in Germany by a dedicated yeast manufacturer. It's an decent dried yeast in testing, but not US05. I'd put it on a par with MJ's? A decent price though

I actually prefer Mangrove Jack's M44 to US-05. Feel it opens up the hop flavours more. One of my favourite yeasts. So if it's comparable to that I'll be delighted.
