Default Canadian HBS stops mail order. Who's left?

This is on Paddokwoods main page.

I need yeast, damn it.

I don't understand how the US can have so many decent online HBS's but Canada has dick all.

I live in Kingston Ontario and get my stuff online here

Skinaney Brewing

They are a little slow and have a small selection but they make me happy.

Cheers

My HBS at www.grapeandgrain.ca will ship. He doesn't have a nice online order page because he doesn't do enough e-business so you'll have to order through email. That would probably change if he got more orders. I'd be happy to be an intermediary on his products for you if you want. I want this guy to do well and stay in business.

I'm not doing too badly with my semi-local BOP shop (35 minutes away). Unfortunately they don't carry much beyond the standard so if I want anything special I have to buy 25KG which obviously doesn't happen. They do carry White Labs however so on the rare occasion I want a liquid yeast I can at least get that.

Yesterday I bought 8kg of Maris Otter, 8kg of domestic 2-row, and 120 grams of Fuggles for just over $50 from Grape and Grain. I'll make 20 gallons of brew from that. Of course, you guys would have to pay shipping.

For $175 they must be ordering right from the UK or something. I buy it for $57 from my "L"HBS and the next time I need to order more I'm going to get it from Gilbertson & Page which is about 15 minutes north of me, supposedly this is where they get their grains from. It might be worthwhile to fire off an email for the heck of it and see if they'll ship.

I can get specialty grains from a brewoub, but yeast is mail order. I'm trying to find a bunch of sabrew 33 dried yeast for making belgians. I bought a 500g brick of safale 04 already.

My neighbor and I have had problems in the summer with ordering liquids. It gets really hot here in the summer and even with cold packs if the shipment speds a weeeknd in a wharehouse, the yeast can be fried.

For hops call Bob at 416-576-5674. http://beerandwinefilter.com/

He only received 30K Lbs this year but after contracts he should have enough for us small bacth people.
