Default Austin home brew

So i just want to say that I found Austin home brew! Amazing place. They have exactly what I wanted. I can get any kit I want and have the freedom of doing all-grain, extract DME or LME. You can make any beer yours. I love it. I have not ordered from them yet I was just going to post and see if it is worth it. Shipping is cheap but is it to good to be true. Is Austin Home brew as good as they look?

I love AHS. I used Midwest for a while until they got rid of flat rate shipping. I found AHS and love their shipping. Their ingredients kits are perfect and can be adjustable to your abilities. Shipping is quick to!

Austin homebrew is awesome. I've not used northern brewer or any other place, but I really don't need to. Ahb has everything and it's priced well and the staff there is great. I've taken an all grain class there also which was awesome. I recommend them to everyone that asks where to get brew kits or anything. Good stuff.

I love AHS, they are great. However, they have gotten slower at filling orders. :/

Having just started brewing I have been really pleased with the support they ported me. The prices are good and knowledge people always answer the phone. Not sure which thread it was but I came across a question about one of the kits the sell, and one of the first replies was from AHS directly to help the guy out.

I have used them several times and have had quick turnarounds with them. Usually getting my order within 3 to 4 days. Fixing to put an order together with them shortly for some more yeast and grains. Love their flat rate shipping. It is cheaper for me to order through them than to go to the LHBS which is over 50 miles away.

Same as everyone else, love em! Huge selection of recipes and great shipping. I wish I lived closer so I could get some different yeasts. They have been a major resource of mine in learning different ingredients, as they have so many styles, different hops, love the seasonals!
