50c a litre!?! Id get 200 for sure next time I am up the coast. For memory i got 50l for $75 and i brought my own containers.
Can I ask where you get it from or is it from a personal hook up? I have 12 spare 20l cubies.

Most places are $1+ a litre, upto $2.

I just chatted to Kingston at mb, they have stock and they do it by weight, 280kg for the average 200l (min size for bulk) drum is $112

Yours at the 13 / 20l is reasonable value with the low min quantity, 65c vs 56c, depends how much rum you want to make and storage available, hit them up for a 200l price too if you can handle it, have a phone around (please and report back :smile: ), I doubt you will do much better in seq area

Any recent suggestions for NOR Perth? I used to go to Pet Stock in Belmont when I worked in the area but now I'm mostly NOR, plus I'm dubious of the quality of the last two pails I got from them.

I see some old posts suggesting City Livestock (Gnangara Rd) and Mirco Bros (Wanneroo Rd), anyone visited these recently? Quality ok?

Cheers!

Won't help yet, but once Costco gets open you'll be able to get the Manildra Molasses, which I can vouch for.

Hey Perth guys,
Is there any good feed grade molasses getting around at the moment? My last tub was from Anketell stock feed on Thomas rd, $45 for 20L. Just wondering where everyone else going and what they're paying.
