Hello! Blightybrewer, Orfy, Oxford Brewer and myself are the main UK protagonists on this site at the mo! As far as 'High Street' Retailers go for equipment there are none. The big guns - 'Boots, Woolies, etc' pulled out years ago. 'Wilkinsons' apparently do a few bits of gear but you'll need to find a local Homebrew shop or the internet for real supplies nowadays

Where abouts in the UK are you? It may be that the internet is your only friend when it comes to homebrew supplies on this fair shore. Good suppliers are:- http://www.hopandgrape.co.uk/home.htm http://www.leylandhomebrew.com/ and http://www.easybrew.co.uk/

Apologies Brew chick! Your in the 'famous five' with us all (rather than the gang of four I previously mentioned ). And ElP - you're technically a 'Brit' by circumstance rather than design!

Dammit ! I'd be Timmy if I was able ! I'd also never leave the house again ! Alas.. I'm not British, so I don't qualify for the list.
