A quick search for 1-Step (or One-Step) doesn't seem to yield results in the UK

Hopville realy helped. Based off your recipe, I scaled it down to a small batch and ultra-simplified it to an all DME recipe hopville.com/recipe/1677924 . I probably won't bother with that one, but will start with version 2 hopville.com/recipe/1677924 . I've been reading a bit of sugar helps dry it out a little and I like the look of that little extra bump of ABV

Thanks, that is a great help. Could you explain what the crystal malt brings to the beer?

Would be very helpful if hops were available from my LHBS brewstore.co.uk/hops-132-c.asp

comment Why is our Original Gravity low?
I think this explains the same issue I just had trying my first kit. The kit suggested the OG was going to be 1.042 for a 23 litre batch, but I was getting 1.034 with only 20 litres (so was actually hoping it to be little higher than the 1.042). I didn't want to mess around too much with my wort, so I just pitched the yeast and left it for a few hours. Just gone back and given it a stir and took another reading and got 1.038. I suspect I have some thick liquid stuck to the bottom or maybe I didn't dissolve all the granulated sugar.

comment Quality difference between LME and DME
To avoid steaming your pack, best to transfer to your measured DME to a bowl. Can then dunk into the water to dissolve off any stuck bits
