And I can't wait to get it! I never really thought much of ordering online, due to shipping charges, until I saw this discount. I checked out the prices and noticed specialty malt was way cheaper then my LHBS. Like, $5-$10 cheaper per pound! Only bargain at the LBHS is bulk. Now, for everything else, I'm online ordering!

AHS has really fresh, quality ingredients too. I try to plan 5 or so brews and order everything at once from them.

AHS has been awesome. I've tried several other hb sites but almost all of my equipment and ingredients come from AHS. I have one heck of a long wish list :P

Congrats on your online ordering. I rely on Brew Master's Warehouse and Northern Brewer for all of my online ordering.

AHS is great. As is NB. I've yet to try Midwest, but they're supposed to be very good too.

I really love tho' on the AHS site how you can mix your grains in a bag per recipe and keep it organized... excellent quality too.

I've ordered from all three and Midwest is my go to. 5% off every day for AHA members.

They charge actual shipping instead of flat rate but always come in cheaper for me than the others because they don't include shipping in their items pricing.

Specialty malts average around $2 something a pound, how are they $5-$10 cheaper per pound?

$5+ per pound? It sounds like your LHBS is trying to royally rip people off.
