Hey, does anybody know where to find large quantities of caragheen? (4-4.5 kilos?)

    Is it for growing weed or cooking?

      First you may want to use the more common spelling - carragheen or carrageenan.

      You can buy it in bulk at beer making supply stores. It is also known as Irish Moss.

        Cooking ;-) I'm writing an Irish menu for St. Patrick's day, and I want to set a milk pudding with it. Is the seaweed itself available at beer supply stores, or only the extract (ie. carrageenan)?

        thanks for the ideas!

          The seaweed (Irish moss) is available. You may want to try calling Charles at Fermentations (on Danforth Ave) as I don't know where the wholesalers are now.

          How much pudding are you making? Must be a a few hot tubs full!

            Yep, I'm making 100 portions, using Henderson's
            recipe in 'nose to tail'...I'm excited!
