Ooops, SORRY GUYS! I wasn't here to answer your posts for a few days!
Yoav, once the weather cools and the fear of getting "cooked" cultures in the mail wears off, I'l be ordering some stuff aswell No problem. I can send in temperature-protective packaging!
If its any help to anyone the costs of my small order were:
- PLA 2 Dose - £8.12
- Kazu 50DCU - £10.14
- MA4001 5DCU - £7.04
- LH100 - 10 DCU - £10.14
- Postage and Packing - £5
Okay. My price for these:
- PLA 10-dose (Sorry, no 2-dose, but look at the price-per-dose ratio!) $16.99 (£10.74 / €13.53)
- Kazu 50-DCU $12.99 (£8.31 / €10.35)
- MA4001 25-DCU (sorry, no 5-DCU but look at the price-per-DCU ratio!) $12.99 (£8.31 / €10.35)
- LH100 20-DCU (sorry, no 10-DCU, Look how much this is for TWICE as much!) $10.99 (£6.95 / €8.75)
Shipping to UK -this is just a padded envelope with a few grams so First Class is $7.21 (£4.56 / €5.74)
for 95 DCU and 10 Doses VS. £40.44
you pay for 65 DCU and 2 Doses. - YOU DO THE MATH!
By the way, all my stuff is shipped in ORIGINAL PACKAGING from the culture manufacturer (sealed with nitrogen in the plant, free of oxygen and moisture). I never breach a package from Danisco, Abiasa or Hansen to re-pack it myself... The only things I re-pack are Rennet, Calcium, Annatto, Lipase, Citric Acid, Ash and Cheese Salt. That is because I buy them in gigantic packages and they are not nearly as sensitive. They are also originally not packed in such protective packaging for a reason and are very shelf-stable.
