From google:-

http://www.aboutfood.co.uk/articles/org ... 14128.html

Don't know anything about the place, I just googled. For basic kit some Wilkinsons stores sell fermenters, kits etc. I know there's a small healthfood/homebrew shop in Rushden as I was in there last week. They sold fermenters, kits, yeast, hops (looked a bit lifeless though) etc etc and I guess could get hold of most Youngs products. They might even be able to order fresh grains/hops in for you ?

I've had that problem,found hbs on search engines only to find them closed down due to owners getting to old to run them. :(

Keg 9, Wellingborough. They do all-grain as well as loads of kits, chemicals, equipment etc.

Andy I found the shop in Rushden the other day too - pretty good if your into kits I thought.

I belive these are the only 2 shops in Northant's. There are a couple in milton Keynes & maybe Bedford.

They had BYO mags in the "please take these they're free" section. I took two but felt I had to buy something also so bought a syphon tube and a W&D tap :lol:

The shop is pretty good for a small outfit in Rushden I thought.

If you feel like going as far as Bedford then you'll have great service from Melvyn & Shirley at the Happy Brewer in Union Street.

I read this post 6 months ago and found the Wellingborough shop which was good! But copper kettle in burton latimer is great he gives good advice and is always helpful I've been a customer ever since

Hope this is helpful from luke
