just starting out...well - took a step backward today as I returned the brewer's best kit i bought because after reading here for a couple of days I decided I'd rather go ahead and piece together my kit the way I want vs using what I wanted out of the bb kit and trashing the rest.
i've decided to try the local bakery for food-grade buckets for the first couple of batches (unless i find a local supplier of glass carboys in the next week).
question is - what is the best supplier for the rest of the kit?
I've gotten all my supplies from Midwest and have no complaints. If you go through Northern (also no complaints), be sure to get a kit or two as they have a flat $8 shipping (except for fragile/bulk items...I had 70lbs of ingredients shipped to me for 8 bucks shipping).
