Default best price on a complete starter kit?

Just like the threads title asks... I am looking for a complete starter kit to begin my brewing journeys. If you know of an incredible price online that I can order from or if you (or know somebody) who is selling a kit PLEASE LET ME KNOW! I need everything to get started!

In my experience nearly all the starter kits across different companies are the same. And all within +/- $10 of each other. So you really can't go wrong with any of them. My only advice is upgrade to get the 'deluxe' with the autosiphon. So really just find a site with flat rate shipping that has an ingredient kit that's appealing to you and order from there.

A quick search Austinhomebrew.com has a good deluxe kit. Has a few extras that I had to buy separate like a grain bag and spoon. Can't really go wrong there. They have endless clone kits and house kits to start off with too.

I just bought my kit a few months ago. First, check craigslist or other local ads. There are occasionally local homebrewers who are selling materials at a good price.

super cheap - you will find threads of guys getting food grade buckets from bakeries, etc. A few of the other items (siphon, airlock) are pretty cheap, but a bottling bucket will make you life easier.

Kits - I agree with another post that the prices are pretty similar. It seems that Austin, Midwest, or Northern Brewer have flat shipping and may have the volume of business to have prices a hair cheaper.

Style - There are a few differences in the kits and that is what is worth looking into. I got the better bottle NB kit. In part the 6 gal BB can be used for beer or wine kits. Midwest kit has a bucket for primary and 5 gal carboy for secondary for similar price. I just didn't want all of that stuff, yet.

I did a lot of searching when I started and found this to be the best bang for the buck, and a rather complete startup kit. I didn't end up getting it, since I decided to go with all glass, and I don't bottle anything, but it was the best priced, most complete, startup kit I could find.

For the money, you can't beat Williams Brewing's starter kit that comes with a pot, fermenters and a chiller. I highly recommend starting with this, you will thank me later:
