This article was written with a British audience in mind. Boots, Sainsbury, Tesco, and Edinburgh Wool Shops are all UK retail chains. If you live outside of the UK, you will have to track down other sources for brewing supplies and honey. If you live in the US and don't have a homebrew supply shop in your area, you may be able to find what you need for mead making at a large warehouse-style liquor store or hardware store. If all else fails, there are several mail order sources for brewing supplies with websites.
