Hello all, I have recently moved house and am no longer near my old trusty brew shop. Can anyone recommend a good online shop that will be able to provide grain, hops and yeast? Thanks

If you just want a few hops..Cross My Loof.

I switch between Malt Miller and Get'er Brewed, the latter is cheaper, but they don't always have everything I need. Both have great customer service, but Malt Miller edges it for it's selection.

Crossmyloof is my #1 and Maltmiller #2

Crossmyloof for exceptional service and free shipping, and Maltmiller for breadth of range and decent service too.

Hops - Crossmyloof
Odd bits and bobs of grain - Crossmyloof
25kg sacks of grain - local microbreweries
Larger amounts of speciality grains - Home Brew Centre, Malt Miller, but I also sometimes pop into Morley Homebrew in Leeds when I'm in the area.

This question crops up regularly.
See the last thread here
I use The Homebrew Company plus Crossmyloof for hops and yeast

Only problem with online grain ordering is that it's heavy and so delivery is expensive. Malt Miller do free delivery over £100 which I've started doing. You get a lot of beer for £100!

Malt millers prices are totally OTT, £44 for 25kg of MO which is nearly £20 dearer than some others. If you're buying a few Kg then maybe but not for bulk.

The 25kg Crisp Maris Otter is £28 on their site, so not too bad.

I like maltmiller for bits and pieces, get er brewed are good price wise and brewuk are pretty good. Also they do Baird's pale malt, which I've grown to like.

You don't mention where you live now, but I noticed you mentioned Hampshire in your post history. That's the same county as Warminster Maltings, who produce very good quality stuff. Might be worth checking out if you're looking for larger quantities.

I was very pleasantly surprised when I started looking for bulk suppliers near me (central Scotland). I can get malt for £20/ 25kg sack from Crisps or from a couple of artisan maltsters. Crafty Maltsters in Fife is the only one of the two that posts malt. I've heard great things about them but haven't had a chance to try their stuff yet.

I usually use the Worcester Hop Shop, but have used quite a number for stuff like rice hulls, water treatment additives, replacement hardware or specialist ingredients in the past.

As outlined above, the different outlets are "better" depending on exactly what you want and I never got poor service from any single one of them.
