The homebrew store were im at is not realy one it a wine, beer, spirits mall. But the have some stuff (extract kits mostly) i just got into AG and i need lots of grain and they only order so much to have on hand. If two AG brewers go in there the out. So ive been ordering stuff from then to hold for me. It takes a month to get anything in and this last time two month. Should stick with them? Northern brewer and other online store are looking very tempting, with there 2-6 day shiping.

I said the same thing, then saw he said there instead of they're, but we are not the grammar police.

I would support the local guy as long as they support you. If you are not getting your stuff in a timely manner, look elsewhere. NB will get it to you in three days in central IL.

Maybe your LHBS received the items on time, but it took them a month to decipher the address and home phone number you wrote down for them.

If I were you, I'd go with an online shop. You'll likely get fresher ingredients, and I'll bet you're overpaying for your supplies at the lhbs.

I would suggest just ordering your stuff online (Northern Brewer, Midwest Supplies, MoreBeer, Rebel Brewing, etc). At least ordering online you can buy what you want instead of settling with what the LHBS might have on hand. However, I would still support the LHBS on the items they do regularly carry.
