Went to order a regulator today and 75% of items are out of stock. Shame, they had a few good
I was recommended to go there to buy the Northern Brewer Deluxe kit but they only had it in stock through Amazon which wouldn't ship here. I checked their site and they had it at 50% off (a crazy price for the kit) but it was out of stock.
So whilst I think you may be onto something, when I emailed them they assured me the kit would be back in stock in the next few days. I guess we'll have to wait and see.
They haven't restocked most items since they had a clearance sale a few months back. So yes, it looks like they're out of the game.
I suspect they might carry on selling equipment but they've given up on malt and hops.
I’ll call them in the morning, they do a very nice regulator with a sensible scale but only they sell them.
I think they have/had some sort of agreement with Northern Brewer from the US.
They're both owned by AB InBev
Which is why the Mystery cases are now filled out with Leffe, Goose Island, and Hoegaarden.
No so much of a mystery anymore.
Been keeping an eye out for another 6.5 gal Big Mouth Bubbler fermenter from them but they haven't restocked for ages. Shame because it looks like they were sole UK distributors.
Spoke to them today, no more cool Northern Brewer kit for us I’m afraid.
It transpires AB InBev has sold Northern Brewer.
Now it makes sense.
Well at least that means NB will now be free to select another UK stockist.
Cannot see it happening tbh.
You think NB will just retreat from the UK market?
Possible I suppose, although I thought Big Mouth Bubblers were quite popular?
I just cannot see the margins for the reseller from a reseller inc shipping and taxes that’s all.
Hope I’m wrong though.
On a brew bucket or a siphon? Agreed.
But their unique products have a market so I’m sure one of the HBS will pick them up. They have no expiry date after all.
That’s a shame! I have not been able to find any other buckets besides the NB range that actually fit in my brew fridge.
