I really like morebeer.com they have competitive prices and they happen to be an hour away. They also have great people working there. The retail store manager is Jon Plise, he was recently named Sierra Nevada's 2006 Homebrewer of the Year.

If you have the option of waiting 7 days from order to door, try www.brewbyu.com for the best prices. They're in NH so shipping will be cheap.

I'd say that there are really only three big players that have the full range of products for brewing - Midwest, Northern and MoreBeer. Of the three, I've found that Midwest consistently has the best prices.

For kits, I'd add AHS to the list - they've really got an excellent selection.

Forget Morebeer. I was a customer, but now their customer service stinks - they don't respond to questions. Pretty much means they don't want my business.

Austin is good; ordered from them and received it quickly. Just placed a large equipment order from Williams; so far they seem pretty good too.

Never had a complaint about morebeer or northern, but bothe are west of the Missisip.

Hippie is east coast. Someone make a rec that would cut down on his shipping time.

Im going to have to disagree there. There was only once when an order got screwed, and they were more than happy to correct the issue at no cost to me. Their shipping speed sucks, but other than that I will continue to do business with them

I have had the most consistant good luck with Williams. Northern Brewer has better prices and more equipment and a better selection of hops, but I have to say I have had consistantly bad luck with their pre-crushed grains. I lose about 15% efficiency...

I am also about to do an upgrade of equipment (mash-tun and kettle).
