    So who is interested?

    The problem is the time of year and the hops are limited for now seams to be bit of a shortage

    I have a account with one of the leading hop suppliers in the UK, however hops can only be purchased in 5kg to 20kg bales

    Hops start from around 27/8 pounds without checking plus postage, very few in this bracket mind!

    The pain is going to be splitting the hops, vac packing, and postage

    All hops will be at cost and the cost will be discussed in this thread and is open to members only!

    For obvious reasons the hops will be split into bags of no less than 100g for cost and time purposes,

    Vac packing costs to be discussed and will be available to everyone interested, {if anyone has a good link to keep the vac pac tubing down all the better}

    Postage costs will be based on 2nd class to keep costs down, the rates are to be checked as yet

    One hop will be purchased at a time for the sheer quantity of it TBD

    Offer open to Uk mainland only and N/I

    All costs will be displayed from start to finish and no profit of any sort will be made from myself

    So whos interested in a group buy?

    It's gotta work out cheaper than an individual could buy small amounts for as most are in the £3 -£5 per 100g range, which works out £150+ per 5kg :doh:
    Must be able to equal, or better £3-£5 but including packing and postage :thumb:
