    Just checked their fb page and apparently someone suffered an accident there so they had to close but expect to be up and running again next week.

    Yeah postal is a killer, even from the home brew shops, extra £6 is a stinger. Im looking at doing a 18g/L brew and the hop prices are bloody insane.

    Geterbrewed are selling 100g of challenger for £2.87 (inc postage)but they are out of date by almost 3 years
    But im sure they keep them vacuum sealed
    Guess It depends on how your using them but being a tight sod on a budget like myself this one's definitely getting tapped up

    Maltmiller has a royal mail option on smaller orders, I used it myself last week on an order of 200g of Mosaic whole hops, some platinum cured silicone tubing and a packet of yeast, cost a little over £3 for the shipping. Usually though I try to do combined orders of malt, hops and yeast, that way the next day shipping is much better value.

    So what harvest are they and who decides when hops are out of date?

    If they're out of date 3 years, BB date would be 2015, the 2014 harvest would go to brewers and my guess it would be the 2013 harvest, at best. But unopened and frozen I'd give it a go...

    First time using Crossmyloof. Needed 50g of 3 varieties and were cheaper than my usual shop. Hopefully arrive today. Received a comical message from them once they'd dispatched which was a nice touch.

    Yes good banter and very quick service
    Lots of different opinions on theyre yeasts though
    I'm bottling up a batch this weekend with which I used the real ale yeast
    It's had 4 weeks so hopefully itl be a good pint in a month or so
