I feel I am going to have to order online!
I order my stuff online, too. I highly recommend austinhomebrew.com, morebeer.com and northern brewer. I had great experience with AHB's customer service when I had a (small) problem and I've ordered from them many times.
You can buy an extract kit and it comes with steeping grains and all you need for a batch of beer and they come out really, really good! Shipping at AHB is a flat rate of $5.99 and shipping from morebeer.com is free if you spend $60.
