Used to and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Started with red & black breadcrumb as the base and then added Provimi 66 fish meal, Tiger Nut meal, crushed Hemp Seed, 2mm Halibut / Trout pellets, Liver Powder, Betaine, Spices and probably other ingredients I can't remember, very effective & endless mixes can be made.

Bailey's No1 is just micronised wheat so a lot of Horse / Farm shops will supply similar, you should be able to buy in smaller quantities if you want to give it a go, you could also buy some Pigeon Conditioner and run some through a blender and use this as a base.

I used to buy from them when they were in Warrington, always top quality and great prices, you won't go wrong buying from them. In recent years I've bought from CC Moore, again great quality but pricier that AA.
And when my fishing really started becoming sporadic I started buying the method mixes from Haiths, again slightly more than making your own but absolutely top quality, I wouldn't hesitate recommending them as a one stop, but naturally being me I fiddled with it

Top quality a well established company and as said reasonably priced.
I buy crumb, method mixes and various liquids from them.

Not heard of AA Baits before.

Their prices seem very reasonable, is the quality any good compared to something like Dynamite or Cell etc?

Any links to what boilies are made from?
Have a look near the top of the bait section, there are also lots of recipie threads in it.
You might also want to have a look at Ken Townley blog on Haiths website, very informative

Edit, Haiths fishing blog click here

I need to find somewhere that does 'smaller' bags of Bailys No1.

Any links to what boilies are made from?

He does indeed, usually always based on Baileys No1, although as of late he's been using quite a bit of mainline gear. The 32lber or whatever it was didn't turn its nose up at the Baileys, you watch it'll be banned up and down the country next
I hope more younger anglers watch the likes of TA, how fishing used to be and how it still can be accessible to those who don't want to or can't buy into the 'norm".

I make my own method and used to make groundbait, method is more based on boilie ingredients (see Kens Haiths posts for eg). I tend to use ground baits and particles more abroad, unless I'm after Bream & Tench. I think it very much depends how much fishing you intend to do at to whether it makes sense buying all the individual ingredients or whether buying pre made is worth it....to you.

A trip to your local Asian super Market will see you right for a lot of the ingredients. A trip to your local animal feed stuffs/real farm shop for pellets & liquids.

I used to buy from a farm shop near Belmont Pool near Northwich in the late 80s, a aviary shop near Mcr Airport in someone's back garden...lol a farm shop in handforth in the 90"s (still there I think). It won't mean much but the point is, find one, look around, there's some good stuff to be had, don't ignore equestrian shops....Molasses by the vat...hmmm.

I've been watching some of Grahams' Totally Awesome fishing channel on Youtube and he makes all his own ground bait

When I did some match and feeder fishing I did.
It give you great insides to the working of ingredients for your boilie mixes as well
