I'm testing out a williams imperial stout right now, seems pretty legit and more advanced than brewers best.

I'm looking into ritebrew as my next choice just to get feelers out ther for who has what, at what cost and most importantly, the end result.

I just brewed the Belgian IPA from www.Ritebrew.com

It is a Belgian Tripel with more hops to make it an IPA from what I understand. Pretty excited for it. Definitely not a session brew coming in at >9%

I have not had this experience with Northern Brewer. When I got my full Deluxe Glass brew kit, hydrometer kit, and Honey Brown Ale Extract kit, it all arrived together within 3 business days!

Northern Brewer all the way. Great company, great website, fantastic customer service.
They even gave me a $5 credit towards my next purchase, because my Doberman ate my priming sugar! Luckily, I found out you can just use table sugar, LoL.

I also have not experienced this.
When I ordered my whole brew kit/equipment, hydrometer, and Honey Brown Ale kit, they sent it ALL to me for $7.99 flat rate!

Yay Northern Brewer!

Ive used midwest supplies and Annapolis Home Brew. Midwest has better prices but I imagine that is because they run a larger operation. Both are very good in my opinion. Annapolis has flat rate shipping as well.

I'm a newb but have used Northern Brewer & Midwest for equipment, Apex Brew Wares (my LHBS http:\\www.apexbrewwares.com) and BrewmastersWarehouse.com for kits.

Liked them both, but Apex bagged my specialty grains for me. Brewmasters Warehouse did not. I have a huge plastic bag full of grains for a Milk Oatmeal Stout sitting in my kitchen right now that I have to find a steeping bag of some kind for. :P

The shipping at www.ritebrew.com varies on what you order. It is very reasonable and they offer a shipping discount of $5 off $50 and $10 off $100.

I recently ordered a Perlick and 3 shanks, shipping was $4.99 USPS Priority.

The biggest order I made was 56 lbs and it was $16 to ship it.

Even after shipping they are almost always the cheapest.
