I actually ordered a bunch of grain and hops from them. Everything arrived good, and prices were amazing. I'll be tasting the first brew from these ingredients very soon. So far, so good!

How'd everything work out for ya with ritebrew?
I'm curious because they say they have a warehouse about 15 minutes from my house and they offer free pick up.

I wouldn't go for a sack of grain and have it shipped, but I had a *big* order of kegging equipment a few months ago... Total ~$300 worth of items, some that had some weight (100' of beer line). It was about $12 to ship it all, ground, from WI to CA. I thought that was pretty reasonable.

Everything turned out great, prices were awesome. The only issue I had was that they sent me a pound of cascades without the AA%. I had to contact the manufacture to get an estimate of the AA% on the hops. I'm sure that issue was a fluke though.

How was the stuff you got? Or I guess I should ask would you use them again for equipment? I was looking on craigslist for keg stuff and they came up. Seeing as how their warehouse is a few miles from me, I'd rather stay local if they have quality stuff.

Given that you are in Texas, check out Austin Homebrew Supply. They do have flat rate shipping and I've always had great experience with them.

It was all as advertised... I'd use them again.

Neil is a good guy, I found them when searching for the phone number of the LHBS, I've used ritebrew.com several times since (just stocked up on base malt ~110 lbs of it in fact). Here in Wisconsin we're spoiled, we've got Northern Brewers, ritebrew.com and a hand full of LHBS to choose from...I'm going broke trying to spread my money around to keep em all open.

I've used www.Ritebrew.com multiple times. Shipping is always really fast and Neil is great to work with. Responds to email same day when I've had a question on something.

I've brewed ~8 of his recipe kits and all of them have came out fantastic. My favorite so far was the Centennial IPA

The English Mild was very good as well!
