Do you have a home-brew supply store within driving distance? Most of the ones in the Atlanta area carry both extract and all-grain kits as well as custom orders. They are also a wealth of experienced knowledge and can get you in touch with the local clubs.

My supplies are coming out just a touch cheaper if I buy locally and save the shipping plus I'm supporting a local small business. I've also run out of something just before brew day and being able to call it in for pickup can be a life saver. I also like getting my yeasts right out of the refrigerator and getting them right home as opposed to a few days in a cold pack in a UPS Truck. If a pack doesn't swell that I bought locally, I just take it back and get another.

Try a couple of kits at first and make sure you like the kit and their process. When we first started we tried kits from about 4 or 5 places and then decided to go to partial mash or whole grain. Once you have the process down, the extra steps in mashing open up a lot of posibilities.

Really like morebeer, austin home-brew, northern brewers as far as extract kits. Austin home brew has probably 100 or more clones of commercial beers in kit form and they are pretty darn good.
