Default Has anybody from Canada, ordered any products online from Hopdawgs homebrewing?

I have been wanting to try BIAB for a while now and I live in Alberta and the LHBS around here are not great at all, so was looking at hopdawgs for all grain, their located in BC.

I live in Ontario and have ordered from Hopdawgs, items arrived within the week and excellent condition, including a 5L flask.

Do you mind me asking if you ordered a partial or BIAB kit and if so, was it good quality?

I live in Edmonton and I have placed two orders from Hopdawgs, once for equipment and grain, another for a large quantity of whole hops. I was very pleased with the experience and pricing, at least on the grain and hops. Chris, the owner and operator of Hopdawgs, seemed fast to respond to inquiries, was very helpful and got both shipments out quickly. And his price for my large order of whole hops was less than half what I would pay for pellet hops at the LHBS, which more than made up for the cost of shipping.

You could also have a look at Bosa Grape in Vancouver. They mostly do wine stuff but have moved into beer equipment and supplies recently. They have way more in store than what they show on their site. I'm sure a quick call to them if you didn't find it online would sort you out. Their prices are pretty reasonable too.

Where in Alberta? I ordered from Chris before. Pleasant experience and low shipping rates.

I live in Edmonton as well. I purchase from Winning Wines Plus south, and when I do order, it is always from HopDawgs. I just placed another order with Chris yesterday as a matter of fact. I can't say enough about HopDawgs, i wish they were local!

I wish the same thing. I've been thinking of ordering all of my specialty grain, hops and yeast from Hop Dawgs from now on and just buying my base malt from Winning Wines Plus. We only brew once a month but we brew two batches at a time (12 and 8 gallons) so we use a lot of base malt. It wouldn't be worth shipping 25kg bags.

Yeah that's pretty much what I'm beginning to do for ordering. Almost everything small from HopDawgs, and anything big or last minute from the local places.
