Leyland do stock it. I’ve bought it from there before.

It is up on their website, but that's no guarantee of their stock.
It's useful to know that, so thanks NB.

I've been getting sorted for my next brew and I'm beginning to wonder whether I should return from the 30 minute mash and 30 minute boil to the longer one hour mash and boil that I did on my very first brew.
Perhaps the short mash and brew is the reason for my beer not having much character. I'm sure my first AG a la Clibit had more about it.
I'll put up a new thread for my brews and outline my next experience, this time I'll be making a Hobgoblin clone.

I don't think the longer boil will make any difference tbh.

Split the difference, John - 45/45 should deffinately convert fully and drive off DMS etc.  I do have to agree with clib tho, my last mash/boil was 30 mins and I've noticed no discernable difference; it does however make a big difference to the brew day length.
Beer is like porn - you can buy it easily enough, but its so much more fun to make it [wink]
