I would like to make a general statment about why I sometimes
take a long time to respond to questions to which I know the answers.
Others may also be of the same philosophy. Two reasons:
1) I live in the Chicago area. When someone from the east coast
or west coast asks for a source for a book or product, I wait to
see if someone knows a local source.
2) I'm not a super-expert (I've only been brewing 2 years) and
although I might know the answer to a question, I usually wait
for someone more qualified than me to answer first. Now that
I think of it, this may be a bit of a burden to the "experts."
The reason I'm bringing this up is that I sort-of guilty when
I read "...three months ago I asked...and got no response..."
I suggest that requestors bear the above in mind and wait till after
the second request to raise the VOLUME on pleas. Maybe I feel so
guilty because I've got, as Richard Lewis put it, "an extra G chromosome"
or maybe I should just Relax, Don't Worry, and Have a Homebrew.

Here's a sample late response:

Geordie products are available (in my area) from:

The Lil' Olde Winemaking Shoppe (Sugar Grove, IL) (312)557-2523
Winemakers (Elmhurst, IL) (312)834-0507

I believe they both will ship or at least you could get the name
of their distributor/importer who could give you a local retailer.
