I am getting together the ingredients for some brews, a couple of which will be very US hop heavy. I used to use Malt Miller but have recently found his hops very expensive plus I don't order enough to get free delivery. I changed to Brew UK but the order came with split bags of grain (to be fair they replaced them the next day) so I'm looking for another option. I use whole leaves.

Generally I use geterbrewed but they mostly have pellets as opposed to whole leaves. I've had good experiences with the-home-brew-shop.co.uk. They have a lot of leaf hops (and pellets for that matter) and their service has been good.

I use Geterbrewed for most things ( although I hate the fact they use Parcelforce).

For anything I need to order last minute, or for hops GEB don’t have (usually Falconers Flight) I use CrossMyLoof.

Again, I only use pellets.

Do GEB charge postage regardless of the value of the order? Bearing in mind I think I could save more than that just on hops.

I jump between the homebrew company.ie and CML online.

Crossmyloof if you just want hops as price includes postage and is reasonable and quality seem to be good

Yes, I think it's £5.95 whatever you order up 30kg. Unless you're ordering >30kg of hops it should be alright. Check their website just to double check though.

..... and both those companies offer kilo bags at good prices, although not across the entire range.

I used the Worcester hop shop and CML. The former when I buy grain, the latter any time but they are more expensive.

If you want English hops in bulk (500g of leaf) Stocks Farm is great. They knock out last years model for £12 a bag.
