Default Getting back into it

I am not new at home brewing. I brewed a lot back in the 90's but I got away from in back in 1998 (big mistake but other things in life kept me busy).
I am getting ready to get started again and what I need to know is this. When I was at it there was no internet and everything I ordered was from a catalog and by bulk. Now with the net I would like to know who has the best prices online for bulk items such as liquid malt extracts, liquid yeasts, hops, etc.
Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I live in western Pa. so maybe vendors on the east coast would be better for shipping rates.
Thanks!

Austin Homebrew is great. They offer alot of clone kits which are always fun. They have flat shipping rates as well. $7.99 free over $100 dollars.

Hard to say, what one store has for cheap another store has something else cheaper, or even more likely much better shipping rates - it all works out to an often similar price range. But here are some sites I've personally used:

http://www.northernbrewer.com - excellent selection, phenomenal customer service, top notch packaging. Prices are a bit higher but they have flat rate ground shipping at $7.99. Some other sites I've used like the next one are a bit cheaper for each item but after shipping there really turns out to be little price difference.

http://www.midwestsupplies.com - excellent selection and always been good to order from

http://www.labelpeelers.com - Excellent prices, cheaper than most others. Good quick shipping and rates. Less selection.

Check out www.grapeandgranary.com as well. I've always had good experiences with them. I tried Northern Brewer for the first time a few weeks ago and they are outstanding.

You might also check out the Local Home Brew Store topic in the HomeBrewTalk wiki.
