I'm trying to determine which online home brew supply company offers the best prices. Any suggestions?

Difficult to say.....the online vendors use different strategies. Some have higher prices on the items you buy, and flat rate shipping. Others have lower prices, but higher shipping. You'll have to look around. I've ordered from several, but I keep coming back to Midwest Supplies. For me, it's about the service.

Midwest supplies seems to have the best prices, at least for me. What I have done whenever I order is go to a few sites and fill the cart with what I want to order and see who comes out cheaper. Midwest Supplies has come out on top every time so far even including shipping. That may change after I start washing yeast though. Northern Brewer may come out on top then. I may order some stuff from Austin Homebrew Supply once I get around to brewing a clone beer. They seem to have a very large selection of clone beers.

They all seem pretty close, but I also keep coming back to Midwest. I like their website layout and selection as well.

Its called shopping around and doing your own research...

For DME (and DME only), I've not found anyone that can beat DMEmart. Lowest prices and free shipping (USPS Priority).

I've found some good per pound prices for hops on ebay.... especially Cascades.

For other items I too use Midwest. (For me it tough to not only find good prices, but to find someone that will ship to an APO address).

Brew Masters Warehouse. Great prices and if you email the owner (i think its [email protected]) he puts you on a preferred customer list which gets you 10% off. He has give-aways for each month for folks who ordered that month. Great Service, usually same day shipping, and great prices.

AHS is likewise great. I think their beer kits are among the best. So many kits and choices from all grain to mini mash to extracts on every kit. They rock!

AHS is nice for free shipping over 100 bones, Morebeer has free shipping over 59 dollars I think. Just put the items in your cart and price them out. Usually Midwest has the cheapest per item cost but their shipping is a little high (to be fair, they're out of the way). There are a lot of options, and they all have unique items, so just check them out for yourself! There is a sticky that should give you a jumping off point.

Good luck!
