Well I've been blessed with an understanding LHBS that generally gives
great advise to noobs starting AG.
Most of that advise was told to them by me
All kidding aside, my LHBS will support AG brewers, but also sells a lot of
wort kits where you just add a bit of water to the packaged ingredients.
I do buy things on-line that I can't source locally, but I try to support my LHBS.
