has anyone bought honey or a kit from them before? also if not then where from? i bought from them because there honey is so much cheaper...but im starting to wounder if the honey is a bad grade...watered down or something i dunno. I seem to be having a very hard time getting my yeast to ferment.

Dude,

After reading the instructions they have on their website for their beer/mead kit, I'd avoid them like the plague.

Try http://www.morebeer.com

or

http://www.northernbrewer.com

or

http://www.leeners.com

Cheers,

Oskaar

Post Scriptum: If you want good honey try the honey locator on the National Honey Board. Do a google search and surf the honey board for more information.

Cheers,

Oskaar

leeners.com has good clover honey and is very consistant in it's floral and taste attributes. Otherwise, if you're looking for other varieties, I concur with Oskaar regarding honeylocator.com.

I third(?) that. Buy local, buy raw. Can't beat it.
