It's really awesome to have so many great online vendors, to choose from. I've used almost all of the big ones, with positive results. I have to give kudos to Northern Brewer. Their customer service is hard to beat. I'm one of the unfortunate ones without a lhbs, close by.

I have always used Austin due to low prices, reasonable shipping cost and large recipe selection. I can see why they don't put the recipe ingredients online. There's a slight premium to buy the kit (over just buying the ingredients) but they earned the premium by testing and putting together a recipe you know will be decent.

I shop them all, buy mostly at my "local" brew shop ( near 2 hours away) to support them.
My favorite online stores are probably northern brew and more beer. I look at morebeer.com more because I check the deal of the day nearly every day. ( great marketing)
Let's see if I keep this updated!

I have 2 local brew shops that I get most of my stuff from. But when I do order online, it's Midwest and Northern Brewer.

Alternative Beverage is my LHBS, so I don't order anything online, ever. Their main wharehouse is only 20 min away. Awesome place to kill a little time. They brew at the store every weekend and anyone is welcome to hang out. They also have a lakeside park where they have festivals a few times a year, free to local customers (or ones willing to make the drive). First weekend in Nov, they are having a cider day at the park. They're going to bring a truckload of apples from the mountains and press them out for whoever is interested. I'm taking my carboy to make 5 gal of hard carbonated cider.
Primary: Octoberfest
Secondary: German Pils
Kegged and serving: Hoptimus Prime IIPA

Brewmasters wharehouse is running a 20% off deal till Halloween that is very good. It is for a cancer donation deal the owner is doing. take a look. Shipping is still $7. http://www.brewmasterswarehouse.com/...search-recipes. If I hadn't just ordered bulk hops and started putting together some of my own stuff, I'd be buying 2-3 of their kits. Worth a look.

I have used Morebeer and Williams Brewing. Williams Brewing ships very fast and has flat rate shipping. They also include yeast with the kit and are competitively priced. However, Williams Brewing does not tell you the recipe. Morebeer has a better selection but takes a long time to ship. I typically wait more than a week for my kit. You also have to order yeast separate. Morebeer also includes the full recipe so you know what is going in the kit. Morebeer also includes steeping grains which is cool.
Kegged: Suicide AppleShine
Bottled: Pinch Runner Pale, Rainout Pale, Leadoff Light, Rally Cap Red Rye, Shutout Stout
Primary: N/A
Secondary: N/A
On Deck: Base Knock IPA, Ed Wort's Haus Ale
