Default Which online vendor has the best recipes?

Of the major online vendors, whose all grain kits have you had the most luck with? Any preferences due to service/quality/price/etc, or are they all about the same?

Norther Brewer's pro-series kits are spot on.

Northern Brewer kits are great. They also have a page with all of the recipes in PDFs. Use downloadthem all and grab them. Many are in the addons for beersmith as well.

While my one Xtreme kit (60-minute IPA) was very good, I've been happier with AHS, both their clones and their own kits. Then there's the variety, 1121 kits.

My LHBS continually disappoints me with bad advice, poor service, and having the doors locked during business hours. I just can't support a business like that and there are no other stores in my area so I need to find an online vendor.

I've enjoyed almost all of the kits/recipes I've gotten from Austin Homebrew. The only ones I haven't enjoyed were pulled or changed due to customer responses (I assume).
