Although I've never brewed an exact kit to the ingredient, I've based most of my recipes on Northern Brewer kits plus the research I've done on these forums.

AHS or Northern Brewer. Made kits from both with great results.

I do like Midwest Supplies, it's where I bought all my equipment when I started brewing and I've stuck with them. Their prices are competitive and shipping is quick to me (Omaha, NE)...

What I do like about Midwest over AHS is that they list their ingredients for the kit on the website, that way I know ahead of time what I'm getting and if there is anything I'd like to add. For example, their SNPA clone lists the hops (Perle and Cascade). When I brewed the kit, I ordered another oz of Cascade for dry-hopping. It's not a huge deal, but I like it

^^^ same with NB, they give you the recipe break down, and when I order their Black IPA, I plan on adding an oz. of centennial somewhere in the boil to bump the IBU to where I want it, with AHS, although their kits are great, you arent quite sure what and how much of anything you are getting.

I have only ever ordered from Midwest, they've never given me reason not to. The AHS clone selection is tempting though.
