Not sure if anyone has tried the Black Sheep Ales at Aldi from the UK?
They still have some at various stores.
My favourite is the green labelled IPA (5.5%ABV).
The Monty Python IPA is quite nice, as is the Blitzen Ale and the dark ale.
For $4 per bottle it is a reasonable price to try some interesting beers.

That might have been me - At $1.99 I couldn't resist. Mind you, that was only a few weeks after my posting. Recently they had a lesser selection and so far they are still $3.99 each. Still nice to sample some of those. The Circadian IPA is good, as are the two red ales they had on offer. The Blonde from Mr Thirsty was the least favourite of mine.

After living in the uk for a few years you can get spoilt for choice. Even then black sheep would register as a purchasing option.

If you can imagine there is an invisible line, and below which there are beers you don’t bother with unless you are very stuck. Black sheep is above the fold.

Now back in Ireland it’s very hard to get any English ale except for the more hoppy stuff (still welcome) just stuff from below the line.

Black sheep would be a regular fridge filler if could get it

I bought one from Aldi about 3 years ago and it works well and is still going strong.
My Dad has purchased 2 from ebay and both work just as well.

also have an aldi sealer purchased last year, still going fine, used for jerky and hops re-sealing, also for meat when going away camping in the camp fridge. better than wasting space in the camp freezer

Just copped a Coopers DIY craft brew starter kit for 20$ from my local Aldi. Decent price for a mini fermenter, hydrometer, bottles, carb drops and can of goop.

Was this a clearance item - so just that store or was it from catalogue? Thanks
Sweet baby Jesus!
It was a clearance item at Mt. Annan aldi.
I don't know hows aldi's system works, seems a bit random.

No way it will hold half a sack. Most malt will fill 2 of 20L pails, some crystal/carra and roasted malts wont quite fit into 40L, so I think you would be needing 4 for a bag, call it $80.
You can get a lot of 20L pails for $80 if you shop around. Not just the price, I suspect pails are going to last a lot longer and stay air/bug tight a lot longer to.

These guys have some good buckets, cubes etc. https://peopleinplastic.com.au/ you need to log in to see prices. As Mark says, 1 Kg of grain takes up more than 1 L of space, my local HBS uses the 25 L buckets as these comfortably hold half a sack of grain, 35 L drum is better value.
