Although I've never brewed an exact kit to the ingredient, I've based most of my recipes on Northern Brewer kits plus the research I've done on these forums.

I do like Midwest Supplies, it's where I bought all my equipment when I started brewing and I've stuck with them. Their prices are competitive and shipping is quick to me (Omaha, NE)...

What I do like about Midwest over AHS is that they list their ingredients for the kit on the website, that way I know ahead of time what I'm getting and if there is anything I'd like to add. For example, their SNPA clone lists the hops (Perle and Cascade). When I brewed the kit, I ordered another oz of Cascade for dry-hopping. It's not a huge deal, but I like it

^^^ same with NB, they give you the recipe break down, and when I order their Black IPA, I plan on adding an oz. of centennial somewhere in the boil to bump the IBU to where I want it, with AHS, although their kits are great, you arent quite sure what and how much of anything you are getting.

I have only ever ordered from Midwest, they've never given me reason not to. The AHS clone selection is tempting though.
