Wow, personally I like the AHS layout. I find it well organized and easy to find what I'm looking for through browsing categories. I've never used the search feature on there.

Example: 1/2" Full coupler. You may not know what it's called but you need it to make a keggel.

You get that CO2 pump fixed yet? I would be nice to be able to fill a bottle on a Saturday or Sunday again.

I have never ordered from them, so I can't comment directly. I have put in three or four orders recently from Northern Brewer and I have nothing but good to say about them. All of my orders have been correct and they arrived amazingly fast. I recommend them highly.

I got the test in on Northern Brewer right now . . . I have jury duty starting Monday and forgot to get a book, so I ordered Designing Great Beers at about 1PM local time (UPS ground delivery, should take 1 business day). . . if it gets here before I have to go to the courthouse on Monday I'll be their be-yotch

I third that, Dr. Jeckels in Arlington is only a few minutes from me, and I'm sure closer to you Ryan, but I prefer to use Austin Homebrew (and don't like Dr. Jeckels). Even with the shipping, which isn't much, it is still cheaper than driving to any of the other shops around here, and their selection is far better. They can also get your order here in two days, as long as they aren't too backed up.

To anyone in the DFW area, I prefer Austin Homebrew Supplies because...

Homebrew Headquarters (Dallas) - Good selection, and nice helpful staff but, it's in the busiest part of DFW just North of 635 & 75 on Coit at the bottom of the Compass Bank building. (like hell driving over there), and it is a little pricier than Austin. Also, bulk LME may not be as fresh do to less turnover, and no shop can mach Austin's selection. They have a great selection of really fresh yeasts from White Labs and WYeast though.

The Winemaker Shop (Fort Woth) - Smaller selection, obviously geared more towards winemaking, no bulk extract, unhelpful, unfriendly staff. A little hard to spot in a strip center off of south Loop 820. I havn't spent much time here because I don't feel very welcome when there, like I'm intruding on their little club.

Dr. Jeckels (Arlington) - Smallest, somewhat poor/dated selection. If you don't know where it is, chances are you won't try to find it. In Pantego (a small town in the center of Arlington for those wondering) on Park Row next to Captain Billy Whizbangs Hamburgers (which rocks ), a mile or so from UTA. Pat is a nice guy, but a little unhelpful IMO, I know others that disagree, besides, they don't have much stuff for him to help yuou with. They do have a great micro brew selection though.
