We use Parcelforce for our courier deliveries and the parcel usually needs to be signed for. If for any reason you are out or unable to take the delivery, the couriers may attempt to leave your parcel with a neighbour for you and put a card through your door. If they are unable to deliver the parcel, when possible it will be taken to your local Royal Mail sorting office or Post Office, or they will re-attempt delivery the next working day for you. A calling card will be left with details of where the parcel is. Estimated time slots will be introduced soon to help with delivery. You can enter an alternative shipping address at the checkout such as your place of work, etc, if you know you will be out, or we can add a delivery note to your parcel such as 'Please leave with a neighbour' or 'Please leave in porch' if you email us any specific delivery instructions after placing the order and we are more than happy to add them to your parcel for you. Parcelforce will follow any instructions whenever possible but it is at the discretion of the delivery driver and cannot be guaranteed. Orders left in a place specified by the customer are at the customers own risk.
IMPORTANT - For urgent orders you must select the tracked courier option, the Royal Mail service is slower and can in some cases take much longer. In the case of any problems courier deliveries can be resolved much more quickly. Please always check at your local sorting office where Royal Mail will take any parcel they cannot deliver for any reason.

first time i had made stout, but this has the smell and taste of guinness, but has the look of mackesons,takes a differnet way of brewing with two cans of wort and a special way of adding the yeast, but after two to three weeks of bottling the taste and head is something worth experiencing...I would certainly be buying this again once I have drunk all forty bottles
This was my first attempt at a 2 can kit. The instructions could not have been simpler and the final result? WOW, I am truly gobsmacked at the quality of this stout. Thick, gorgeous mouth-feel with a rich, creamy, beige coloured head that stayed to the bottom of the glass. Wonderful.
