    So you guys have probably already come across many home brewing sites but I discovered https://brew2bottle.co.uk/ last night.

    They have everything I’ll need for a while so I’ll be brewing loads in the New Year lol

    Got to be the worse online brewing supplier I have seen. Only two varieties of hops, both pellets, no sacks of malt! very limited not for me.

    They had what I wanted earlier in the week, and their prices and postage fees are very competitive. Different suppliers cater for different area's of the market.

    I just can't see how they can only offer two varieties of hops

    They only appear to have one variety now: endeavour, 2016 harvest. Maybe they're doing away with ingredients and only stocking kits.

    A very nice hop. Why would you want anything else! Having a choice is over rated.

    It is a nice hop. I'd like mine a bit fresher, though.

    When they had a shop there was a reasonable variety of hops and a small selection of 500g bags of grain. I suspect what's left is the remnants of these as they don't seem to cater for AG any more.

    It instills no confidence in a supplier when they say "Hops were not always one of the cornerstones for beer brewing." It's true but hundreds of years have taught us differently.
