They're getting bigger, but still feels like they pay attention. They contacted me mentioning that they noticed I was buying a lot of grain and told me I should look into the virtual bag. That's the kind of service I've never gotten from northern or more.

I see that Brew Brothers offers grain from Great Western Malting that is significantly cheaper than the other malting companies. Have you all used malt from Great Western? If so, what are your thoughts?

Great Western is the supplier for the Western States as I understand it. I use them almost exclusively because of the price break here and I have no complaints.

I've never used any of their kits, but have no complaints at all about the kits I've gotten from Northern. They are top notch for sure in that aspect.

I personally prefer austinhomebrew.com and sometimes I order from northernbrewer.com. I tend to order more from AHB as they have a huge selection of kits to choose from and if you just want to order grains from them, they seem to come in a little cheaper. The only downside to ordering from either of them for me anyway is it takes about a week to receive anything from them since I live halfway across the country from them.

That being said...anyone know of a good supplier on the East Coast or in New England?

be careful when ordering kits from online vendors....the LHBS that I go to has kits that are much better than the kits in a box

For the east coast, there is Annapolis Home Brew. They have flat rate shipping for $7.95. The prices are slightly more expensive than Northern Brewer, but I can get my yeast from there without having to pay for rush shipping because I'm in D.C.

Rebel Brewer in Tennessee I know for a fact that they crush there grains and measure out ingredients right before shipped out. Being my LHBS, you go in and pick a kit, they come back in about 20 min after making the kits fresh! Plus seem to be cheaper on a ton of other stuff than other sites. Rebelbrewer.com!

My go to is morebeer.com because of the super saver shipping (free, albeit slow, shipping if you spend over $59). Not sure anyone else still does this.

Sometimes AHB has some really good deals on equipment though. They also offer a rewards program that I believe equates to 1% cash back.
