so far homebrewersoutpost out of flag staff have been the best for me. I live in Alaska and they only charge me $9.00 shipping for an 8lb box kit with liquid yeast. While other sites (including morebeer) want to charge me upwards of $26.00 kinda lame.

I read their shipping policy which is great for me since i live in a very rural area in Alaska. "We will not charge your credit card until we send and you accept a shipping quote. "

http://www.brewmasterswarehouse.com

this is a good site and good customer service. Although, my past few orders have taken time to process/ship. When I first started using them it was usually a 3 day turnaround time. Lately I am up to closer to 5-7 days. Guess their expansion slowed down the turn around time. BUT, their customer service is still #1 and product line great. So, I will just have to be patient. Anyone else experiencing this also?

I've been looking at internet sites for the past 3 months or so trying to figure out what kit would be best for a beginner and what equipment I would want to start brewing with.

There is a lot to say about using a local supply house. I decided to stay local and use our local supplier here in Charlotte, Alternative Brewing (or Homebrew Adventures, as listed on the first page of this thread). I'm glad I went with them.

They were extremely helpful, gave me some good discounts and hopefully I'll get some good advice as I grow in this sport!

I usually use Austin, morebeer, or Northern Brewer, but last time I tried Midwest Supplies (only place I could find 2 gallon fermenters, plus prices are good) and I just have to say I had a very poor experience.
I got 4 of those 2 gallon buckets and they were all badly scratched on the bottom. I've heard scratched buckets are bad since they can harbor bacterias and when I emailed them they were just dismissive: "it's due to the manufacturing process." Maybe, but it sounded suspicious, and the scratches are not uniform or anything. They were willing to let me send it back, but I'd have to find a box that fit and it sounded like a pain so I decided it wasn't worth the effort.

Then on my next brew day as my wort was chilling and I was preparing the primary -- which was a 6g fermenter bucket, also from Midwest -- I couldn't get the spigot to fit into the spigot hole...I tried both the spigot it came with and a couple others, the hole was just a bit too small. I was able to finally get one in by a combination of jamming and twisting but then it leaked! When I emailed Midwest back I got another dismissive response: "they are drilled smaller on purpose...twist it in."

Again, they offered to let me return it, but by then I'd thrown away the box and it still wasn't worth tracking down shipping material for a few dollars.

Of course at bottling time as I was using the capper I'd gotten from Midwest to replace my cheap one I noticed it was somewhat crooked -- and sure enough all the caps were going on lopsided and not airtight.

Anyway, I've rarely had problems before with any equipment, and the times I have the other online shops have really been great about sending me replacements immediately. It's not even the cost -- I don't have an LHBS so if I get bad equipment it can be a disaster.

Just wanted to see if anyone's had similar issues...otherwise maybe this is a warning, or maybe it was just terrible luck.

I order from Midwest Supplies and I've never had a single problem. Even when I griped that I thought the yeast they sent me wasn't viable they offered to replace it. Pretty much every piece of equipment I own I got from them.

They are very helpful on the phone...rather than e-mail try calling them next time.
