Default Where to get rye extract in the UK?

Hi All,

Does anyone know of a UK company which sells rye extract in dry or liquid forms?

Cheers,

Amos

Hi Amos

I am from the UK too and am struggling to find everything I need especially at a reasonable price where abouts in the UK are you ?
The best source I have found is from www.brewuk.co.uk they seem to have everything I have needed so far.

Justin.

Hi Justin,

They've got some interesting products on their site, however, no rye malt extract as far as I can see (although they do have crushed grain in small packs).

I know Northern Brewer in the States do a rye malt syrup, but I also know they only ship internally to the US. Surely someone in the UK does something similar?

I'm in Chesterfield, Derbyshire by the way.

Amos

You would think so I really struggle with my LHB shop it's tiny and they only seem to stock the very basics I.E kits barrels and some extracts and such grains and things like that I have been having to look around.

I am just looking to make the move from kits to extract brewing and its not easy not having everything easy to get.

I'm in sandiacre on the boarder of Nottingham/ Derby so your not that far away I have seen online that there is a home brew shop in Swadlincote somewhere but I haven't got round to tracking it down yet and going and having a look.

The one in long eaton called cheers is the one I go to currently and Saturday just gone I visited te flagon and cask in bulwell and that was a bit grim in there. About the same sake as the long eaton shop but it was pretty dingy and dirty although they do stock small bags of grain which was reasonably well priced £1.60 for a 500 gram bag the hops were expensive through they were £6.80 for a 100 gram bag.

Justin.

That is very expensive for 100g of hops, I buy mine at the moment from Brewmart in Sheffield which isn't too far away for me, their hops are around £4 per 100g. They do a fairly good mail order service from their website, just Google for them. Their delivery charge for orders up to £65 is £5.50 though, but spend over £65 and delivery is free apparently.

Seems there is another shop in Chesterfield, and one in Mansfield, but I've not visited either yet. Most of my current home-brew equipment has been bought by family for me as presents, from places like Wilko and Tesco, lol.

Lol most of mine is the same I have bought a few things from my LHB shop but a few things off eBay as well I got another barrel this weekend just gone for £12.50 that puts me up to 3 now :-).

So how long have you been brewing ? And how have you been doing so far ? It's nice to find someone from the UK lol.

Justin.

I will have a look at brewmart that link I sent you for brewuk they aren't too badly priced on hops they are around £3.60 and their shipping for orders under 1kg is about £2.60.

Oh, I'm totally new to brewing, only been doing kit and extract since Christmas. Some partial brews with steeped grain. Will eventually move to all grain sometime though, eventually.

Another place for hops I'm considering trying online is SimplyHops. Their site is really easy to navigate, reasonably priced and dead easy to see what's in or out of stock for so many varieties of hop. UK delivery is £2.74 so not bad too. If anyone else knows anything about them I'd like to hear your opinions

Amos

I have been going for just under a year now I started with wine though, I'm still doing wine as well it tends to come out quite well as Fay as beer is concerned I have only brewed from kits so far but now want to move to extract and again eventually all grain.

This is providing that all grain produced a better beer the kits I have been doing have been coming out pretty nicely and if doing all grain isn't much different in flavour I am kind of thinking what's the point in putting the extra effort in ??

Have your partial mashes tasted better than a kit ?

I will have a look at that website I looked at the brewmart they are pretty cheap it's just the shipping with them doing a standard £5.50 shipping pushes it back up again it would be good if they did a more tiered system with their shipping.

Justin
