Default Best place to buy kits online

Does anyone have any recommendations? My local supplier's stuff is past its expiry date, and he doesn't have the kits I want to try. I've heard good things about Coopers Wheat, and I'd like to try experimenting with yeasts if anyone has any recommendations.

No, the Gaslight Brewpub in South Orange. The owner has some supplies upstairs.

Really, I didn't know that.

I buy supplies from B3, I'm a sucker for the free shipping. I buy base ingredients instead of kits, but they have plenty of kits to try.

I use Austin Homebrew Supply. They have a huge selection of kits and very reasonably priced. $5.99 flat shipping.

I've been making a lot of Cooper's kits...Stout, Real Ale, and Bitter so far. Can anyone recommend another brand of no-boil kits? The only other one I've tried is Brewferm's Christmas Ale, which is pretty decent after 5 months of aging.

Why do you want no-boil kits? You will really open up your possibilities when you move beyond no-boils.

As an aside, I just brewed this past weekend a Coopers LME Wheat kit. I added, per the label, some DME (weiss), dextrose, and some hops. I just tested the gravity tonight after three days in the primary and got to taste the juice. Its EXCEPTIONALLY good already, and has lots of great color.

Good luck, I am reading this thread with interest as I like to do specialty grains with either LME or DME kits.
