It also has our in-store beer kit menu which is just an easy way of looking up kits.
is it updateable?

Dang it I just bought two 4Gb drives earlier this week..
I have 20 gig on various drives that I carry around.

Also - I signed up with their member ship and while I'm not saving as much as advertised (I skip a few things) it is still a money maker in the long run.

It's been a joy to watch them grow.

Just don't expect AHS to always honor the prices they quote you on HBT...

Same here, not trying to hijack the thread...Just adding my perspective as a dissatisfied customer.

We last discussed the price misquote on 01-04-2009, 02:30 PM. If you save your PMs, I encourage you to look it up. Otherwise, I can resend your response.

A "price misquote". ummmm and you are upset?. Mistakes happen. Move on.

kanielb1 - I have not seen a recipe page either - perhaps it's a page recipe kits they are talking about not actual recipes?

It would be nice to know if their in-store beer kit menu can be updated or is it a one time thing - updating would totally rock!

Alright, I guess you've forced me to explain...And you're correct - mistakes happen. But, I haven't shopped there since.

I called AHS to get an in-store price quote for a bag of 2-row. The quote was about $10 lower than the homebrew shop in SA and I'd heard good things about them, so I made plans to drive up to Austin in a couple of weeks. They mentioned I should contact them in advance to make sure they have full bags on hand, so I PM'd Forrest a couple of days before and he quoted me a price for 2-row and maris otter.

I was happy with the quote, so I drove up to Austin (1.5hrs) and both prices were wrong. The maris otter price was at least $20 higher and the 2-row price was about $5 higher. Naturally, I was pretty frustrated with the maris otter price difference. After much convincing, the salesman went to speak with Forrest in the back. The salesman came back out a few minutes later and said I could have $10 off the bag of maris otter. So, the price was still $15 higher that what I was quoted.

I then asked to speak with Forrest and was told "he's already left". I later PM'd Forrest when I got home and learned he had a death in the family, which is why he left without speaking to me. Totally understandable, but I learned that after the fact.

Not honoring your quote may be acceptable to some people, but that's not how I choose to do business. Nothing personal Forrest, it's just business.

Agreed, I don't "hate" AHS or Forrest in any way. I just choose not to do business with them based on a past experience.
