I think that Midwest has generally better kits, but I frequently use Morebeer because it's free shipping over $60. The kits aren't bad at all in my opinion, but often I make additions/modifications just to experiment. JUST REMEMBER that the Morebeer kits do not come with yeast. You need to add that to the order.

I like Austin homebrew supply. I can order on Tuesday and have it by Thursday and they have good kits.

I haven't used any kits from MoreBeer so I cannot comment on them, but I have used kits from the other three and haven't been disappointed with any of them. The shipping is more reasonable from AHS than the others I think and their selection is bigger. The "Brewing on a Budget" kits from AHS are a pretty good deal I think.

I've done a half dozen Northern Brewer kits and two from AHS. I can't quite put my finger on it, but upon FG sampling both AHS kits, I was really taken back at how good they were at that point in the process compared to the others I've done. I think my next few kits are going to all be from AHS.

I've only done kits from AHS and I've been very pleased with the results.

I've focused on Belgians and Stouts. Done a dozen or so and never had one fail or not taste good.

I've done 2 from Midwest. Admittedly, they were very and inexpensive kits but I found them mediocre.

I have done 6 or 7 from AHS and loved them. These kits were more advanced and more expensive. I really like the instructions I get with the AHS kits; they're clear and easy to read.

I do not know if it's the specific kits I purchased or overall quality, but I prefer AHS so far. I do plan to try MoreBeer as I think the shipping will be faster and I'll give Midwest another whirl as well as trying my LHBS.

I like northernbrewer because I started with them and have always received great service. And 7.99 shipping is not bad on a good size order. I also like that their kits allow you to view the exact recipe before purchase which to my knowledge is not the case elsewhere. I've always been pleased.

I've only used Northern Brewer so far and I have been satisfied. Customer service is great too.
