    Replace the paint shop with an express pre-ordered mash centre. Set your grain bill and mash duration online.
    Click & collect, boil at home.

    Similar. Used a sack of the Viking pale ale and Munich. Both seemed very good. Hard to complain at $50 per sack!

    I was going to order some base grains from Ellerslie in Mitcham.
    If a few more are interested i'm potentially happy to run it.... maybe.

    It's just down street from their warehouse.

    Anyone keen on hops? they sell per 5kg bag and prices vary from about $30 to $60 per kg depending on hop variety.

    Just checked: Chateau = Castle.
    $39 per bag?! Wow. Manticle might move back to Melbourne if he sees this!
    (I wonder if that is the definite price list or if it's their cost & a little margin might be added for a bulk buy...)
    I don't really need bulk malt right now, but at those prices I'll be grabbing a few sacks.
    Because, well, it's Belgian.
    And cheap.

    How did I not know about these Ellerslie guys, so close to home?
    So you can just rock up and buy a bag?

    Yes you can.
    They are open Mon-Fri. They supply Coopers with majority of their hops and also partake in design some of Coopers seasonal beers.

    And Ellerslie are growers of many fresh hops grown in Australia (based in the high country vic & some in Tassie.

    I am no way or means promoting these guys, i just like places close to home for convenience!
    But have had good customer service so far!

    Prices exclude GST
