Default Where to buy?

I live in about 5min outside Ottawa, Ontario. That I know of, there's only one good LHBS in Ottawa, http://www.defalcowines.com/.

Their in store stock looks ok to me, but I'm a newb so I don't know what's missing. Should I be ordering things online?

Online is almost always cheaper, especially if you can find a discount coupon.

Northern Brewer and Midwest Supplies are two of the best online stores IMHO

Some LHBS are good and cheap; others, like mine, screw you on the price and charge 2-3x for the same items you can find online

In Canada ordering online gets pretty pricy due to the shipping fees, although because your in Ontario it may be substantially cheaper. In NS if I even want a packet of yeast from an online store its going to cost $20 in shipping.

Check this link out for some great Canadian online shops.

Couple more for ya:
http://www.hopdawgs.ca/
http://homebrew-supplies.ca/viartshop/

But to answer your question that store looks like it has more than what you need as a beginner. The store that I got my start from didn't have yeast other than what came with the kit, no hops, no star san or iodopher. Really all I got was the beginners equipment and a cheap kit and kilo extract kit to start with. That store looks great. Cheers

ok, thx for the links. So at this point, I could probably just assemble a list of ingredients and see if they carry them and if they do, I'll check their prices against the online stores. Thx again!

I just thought I would share, there are a few recipes on the site for my LHBS.

At my local brew store it's $12 per pound of dry extract and it's all expired! What a deal After about a year of supporting them I couldn't take it anymore and searched for an online dealer with free shipping. WWW.beergrains.com has free shipping for ordered of $100 or more and is 5% off for another day or two. And it's 10.50 for 3 pounds of extract! Less than 1/3 the price. Yesterday i put an order together for 3 different brews and some Star San. Can't wait until it arrives. I couldn't even get Star San locally and if I could it would be expired(even if it's not possible) and cost $300.

I was looking at that store Uno, and their $100 free shipping deal. Did the deal cover if you bought bulk hops? If not how did you get to the $100 mark?

I'm going to brew West Coast Pilsner, a Dos Equis clone, and 15 minute cascade pale ale. These will be the 1st non kits I've brewed and I can not express how excited I am. I don't see how the bulk hops would change anything as opposed to grain.
