I hear a great deal mentioned about AHS (who has some great kits and information), but I need something local. I have been to all the shops in a certain area (I won't mention where because I don't want to offend anyone). As a beginner, I have recieved numerous bits of bad advice too lengthy to mention here. Everyone has their method and approach.
To make a long story short, I finally found a great LHBS!!!! The other places I visited in my area pawned me off on some junior member of the staff. However, I found a great resource at Dr. Jeckyll's Beer Lab. They don't have a web presence, but Pat the manager was awesome. He didn't even laugh when I mentioned I needed to buy a new auto-siphon because someone mentioned that I needed to siphon my wort from the pot to my primary (rookie mistake...200 degree wort + plastic don't mix...DUH).
I LOVE BREWING!!

What does "AHS" refer to? I tried to search but the term is too short.

Austin Homebrew Supply

This is who I buy from due to the lack of a LHBS reasonably close.

Arlington Texas...sorry for the confusion.
Austin Home Brew Supply has a great website. I suggest checking it out. There are several HBS in the DFW area.

Yeah, try not to use so many accronyms unless they are familiar on an national/international scale.
