I buy from Midwest Supplies and Northern Brewer. Great experiences with both so far.

I use northern brewer. I have not compared prices with other online suppliers but so far I'm very satisfied with everything I have bought from them. I bought the deluxe starter kit from them and when it arrived my six gal carboy was broken I called them the next day and they sent me a new one right away no questions asked and upgraded the shipping to second day air. So +1 on customer service. I'm sure others have different opinions but as I said I've been very satisfied with everything I've gotten from them. I'm pretty new to brewing myself I have done three extract kits from them and both (the third is still fermenting ) have turned out really well. Just make sure to get John Palmers book How
To Brew the instructions that come with there kits are kinda weak. Anyway that being said you don't have to shop at just one place and there is also your LHBS I'm going to start checking out other places as well both online and off although I do feel loyal to NB for the way they handled my broken carboy issue....(it was my first time ever ordering brewing equip and my first brew ever so I was very disappointed )

I'm new to homebrewing and purchased alot of my equipment from Morebeer.com.

They have very competitive prices plus if you spend $59 your shipping is free.

I will say that shipping is slow to the eastern part of the US where I am at but for free its hard to complain. If you can wait a week and half or so it is worth it.

Never discount your LHBS. I bypassed mine to use Midwest, Northern Brewer, Austin, BMW. Williams and Adventures when I started out. Once I walked into my LHBS and actually bought from them, my efficiency jumped from 59% to 76%, And my cost went down by 30%. All of my online experiences were good.
