And bad customer service??? If you don't know how to handle poor customer service reps, you probably aren't old enough to be brewing your own beer.
Not really sure who you are. Probably the little kid that answered the phone the three times I called when i had problems with my order, who basically blew me off while probably playing his Nintendo DS or talking to his mom about what he wanted for dinner.
I actually consult customer service for a living, which is why I wanted to make it a point to point out the problems that I had. As a business owner, I WANT to hear what people have problems with so I can fix them. Forrest gave me a very valid response, and I appreciated his honesty. I got my shipment today and everything was in order... and I will continue to do business with them.
There are hundreds of home brew suppliers just like Austin on the internet. I had a problem, and they responded properly and kept my business. Had I said nothing, I'd have just taken my business elsewhere.
