Default Online retailers

The closest hb store is an hour away from my house. Its a great place, but inconvenient. What is the best online site to have supplies shipped? I haven't graduated to all grain....yet! (If that helps) Still mini mashing. Thanks!!

I'm a big fan of Austin Homebrew. They have tons of recipes which you can get any of them in extract, PM and all grain. I got several partial mash kits from them and loved them all. Plus they have affordable flat rate shipping.

I use MoreBeer. They have a good selection of extremely fresh products, at competitive prices, and offer free shipping on orders over $59, with a few exclusions.

I use Adventure in Homebrewing. They have had problems in the past with getting product out the door quickly but I have not had a problem recently.

Most of the top online retailers (several mentioned above) are very close in price, selection and service. I would try to find the closest one to you to cut down on shipping.

MoreBeer. They put out some GREAT kits... and customer service is second to none.

I haven't ordered from them online, so I can't attest to their shipping or online customer service. But I just bought some yeast from their store in Taylor, MI a few weeks ago. I hadn't been there before, because the other local shop that is about the same distance from me is right around the corner from my dad's house. The store I normally go to didn't have the yeast I was looking for and AiH had it in stock.

Anyway, I would definitely shop at Adventures in Homebrewing again. Good selection. Helpful staff, as far as I could tell. And there were plenty of other customers buying things in the time I was there. That means a decent turnover of stock, which means fresh ingredients. Also, they have a member's club type thing (not sure if it applies to online sales), and when you spend $200 you get a gift card for some amount. And that isn't $200 in one purchase, they keep track over time.

Yes they have the membership club thing for online sales also.
I would love to visit the store some day. At the corner of 69 and 94 I am thinking "left to continue on to see my parents or right to AIH"

Google says I live only 2 hours from them. Online is just easier for me as I can usually get my items in two days or less.

I've only ordered from AHS but I've been very pleased. They have a policy to meet anyone's price including delivery. Currently they are offering free shipping on any beer kit.

Shipping rates for other stuff are $6.99 for under $100 or $4.99 for over $100.

Excellent service and packing. I recently placed an order for a wine kit. When it arrived the date code on the box showed that it had been produced less than three weeks earlier.

I'm also a kit brewer and I've been very happy with the quality of their kits. I've made some very good beers.
