Would be nice to grab a 20Kg bucket of pure, unadulterated Molasses, but I reckon freight to tassie would be a killer!

Shit that's cheap for any molasses let alone top grade 1st run.
I'm not in NQ but not too far away & very keen to work something out if possible.

Why don't you folks do what I did. I simply rang Bundaberg Sugar and they gave me the telephone number for their representative in the area where I live. He gave me four outlets to ring and the first sold to the public. Job done!!

bt1,

Yes, it is food grade molasses. It's all spelled out it the original post, however, I don't' mind repeating, it's available from (or rather, this is where I got mine) Southern Cross Supplies and it's $20.10 cents for a 14 kg pail. I'm guessing that it's a normal 10 litre pail but the specific gravity of the molasses is running at about 1.4 kilos to the litre.

I'm not fully understanding the second paragraph in your post, can you please elaborate.
