    Sounds like Hi Mountain needs a local distributor, maybe????

    I have the same problem. A $5 order is $12 - $24 depending on method. Then have to deal with customs and taxes at the border. Anybody know of a Canadian distributor???

    I was also shocked at the shipping I was charged from HiMountain. So I decided to e-mail them and ask if perhaps 'FORUM MEMBERS" could recieve some sort of discount for being loyal customers. This is the response I recieved ;

    Johnno, maybe you should give her a call or e-mail and ask her if there is any kind of deal (or distributorship if your interested as PigCicles mentioned) you can get to Australia.

    Johno -

    I searched and searched and didn't find any stores in Austrailia. Just an eZine with no links. Lots of brewing sites though ... [​IMG]
