    Would it be worth finding a bulk hop supplier and clubbing together

    It was running before, but no outcome at the end. I would be happy if we could sort something.

    Most supplies need to have an account with them and usually it's only the British hops that are available.

    I found a place selling 5kg bags of hops, not all UK and grain at £16 a sack. http://www.brewersselect.co.uk/ingredients Also you can order bulk organic hops from NZ on ebay. I would definitely be interested.

    Looks good, although no prices for hops or delivery

    I'll contact Charles faram and see what I can do. Any particular varieties? I suppose we will be limited to a couple of types at one time depending on how many people are interested

    I have an account with brewers select and live nearby so no delivery charges.

    I'd be happy to find some prices...

    The only issue i have is packaging them, i don't have a vac pack.

    Bittering hops, like Columbus or Hercules would be great plus some Cascade, Centennial or Citra would be superb. Will watch this thread with interest.

    As Mentioned i used zip lock mylar bags. You could also chuck a couple of oxygen eaters in there too. This would act the same as a va packer.

    That would be good, delivery puts the price up a good amount
