It was Union surgical stores at Sunderland, which became Bob's home brew before it closed.

Anyone remember the "dry kits" from Youngs? My dad used to swear by them in the 70/80s. He only used to make up to 24 pints as the dried ME and hops supplied weren't really up to making 40 pints.

No. I was so appalled by the results of kits in the 70's I didn't brew again until 2011. :lol:
