I'll throw in my kudos as well. Love their selection and have always gotten super fast shipping from them.

You gotta love any organization with the slogan "brew your own damn beer"

I just get gear from them and they are batting 100% with me so far.

They need to get rid of the ****ing packing peanuts.

Other than that, love AHS.

I think I remember someone from AHS coming on here and saying to just wash 'em down the drain as they will completely dissolve in water

Reason: typo

I like them a lot. My only complaint is that recently I tried to add onto an order that I placed over a weekend. I called first thing Monday morning. I was told it had already shipped. In reality it wasn't shipped until Tuesday night.

Otherwise, I love their website and prices. I'm a big fan of their wishlist as it's hard to keep tract of all the goodies I want to eventually buy.

Yeah, AHS uses those biodegradable ones. They simply dissolve in water.

i started off with AHS for everything, but now with a keg supply store and LHBS near my work, it's often better to buy from them. specially, grains, i can buy 10 lbs. of grains for a batch, and not have to pay $8 shipping. I generally only use AHS for larger equipment purchases, since they blow my LHBS away on prices.

one thing I wish AHS had, BULK HOPS! Why do they still only sell in 1oz. packages, for $3 no less.. that's quite expensive.

Do what i do. I put all the packing peanuts in a garbage bag and stop by the local mom and pop packing and shipping store and give them to them. They are happy to get them for free and recycle them by using them again.

Copy Right should send AHS a Christmas card as they/I keep them well stocked with packing peanuts.

The hops are $1.99 an ounce. Not $3. I will look into bulk hops. What size?
