I just received an order from Beer Grains and couldn't be happier with product, service, shipping and packaging. Pricing was good, particularly after free shipping based on total order.

Super service really, very prompt. Prices are very good, a lot better than those god awful prices at homebrew-supplies.ca (often 50% higher than hopdawgs!!! ex: female camlocks at 15$/10$ jesus...)... The only place I could find with better prices was ihomebrewing.ca but the equipment selection isn't as great as hopdawgs... (ihomebrewing does have a super cheap selection of SS ball valves)...

Anyone know a CHEAP place IN CANADA that I could order online for Stainless Steel fittings? Some kind of bargainfittings.com based in Canada ;-)

We added some of the basic stainless fittings (no camlocks yet) and plan to have another 15-20 items in the category soon. We also expanded our list of Canadian HomeBrew Supplies here:

TorontoBrewing.ca is a good site to purchase online, done a few orders with them, good selection and the prices are about as cheap as I've seen, although on a typical order we're only talking a couple of bucks difference.

I used to wonder how I could get the prices and variety available south of the border but over the last year or two Canada has become home to new, more enthusiastic suppliers whose success enables them to stock ample product.

Ontario Beer Kegs does a great job and can have well-priced product picked from a wide selection on your Canadian doorstep very quickly without the border mystery. I haven't tried them for ingredients as I have been very happy with Beer Grains but being associated with OBK is a good sign.

Fromagex in Quebec has a remarkable assortment of cheese related products, reasonable shipping and respond quickly to inquires. I am waiting on my first order from them.

Speerville Flour in New Brunswick, while local is very well stocked and the product is top notch. I wonder if there aren't others like them across the country.

My point is things have changed - actually have been changed very much for the better by an illustrious group of merchants. Before placing an order elsewhere, run it through one of these Canadian suppliers as well and then guess the cost of importing everything, add the exchange rate and then compare. (If you don't actually know anyone using a particular supplier you may want to check the shipping date before ordering.) I find prices are consistently better in Canada and knowing the final cost from the get go may lack mystery but more than makes up for it with pleasant results.

18 for coopers is a little steep. The grocery stores sell them here for 15 sometimes they go on sale for 12.

Try your local large box grocery or dept. Even super store sells a brand of pour and stir kits for about 12.

These are the guys I've been dealing with. As expected the prices are a bit higher than NB and companies like that. But, there selection is excellent and they are awesome to deal with. Anything you order shouldn't take more than fives days to get to you. Probably less if you're just in Peterborough
