Chicompany.net for corny kegs. I like midwestsupplies.com as a good source for most items, but in particular I think they were the cheapest (including shipping) that I could find Better Bottles. Williams pre-assembled Perlick/shank/etc is a very good deal too, as someone already mentioned.

Not sure if you want to include consumables on the list or not, but brewmasterswarehouse.com is my preferred source for ingredients, and I got my barley mill there too. Hopsdirect for bulk hops.

Stainless brew pots
MoreBeer- 8g
MoreBeer-15g

These are the cheapest by almost $30 when including shipping and lids.
These are the same pots sold by Nothern Brewer and Austin Homebrew. I will match or beat any delivered price on the pots just let me know.

Same goes for March pumps if you have the same model we have (809HS) with a bracket and cord.

I bought a wort chiller from him about 5 weeks ago. I never got a notification that it was shipped but it did arrive(and the invoice was signed with a thanks). I did email him after but never received a response. Hope it works out for you.

I think it was about a week and a half. I believe he is in Canada, so the shipping for that much stuff may just take longer.

I ordered a wort chiller from this Brewster Brown guy as well. I got a notification that my payment went thru, but nothing on shipment. I sent him an e-mail a few days later and then another one a week after that. Still nothing. Based on some prior posts here it seems that he doesn't respond to e-mails, but the stuff comes at some point. The price was right, so I'm hoping it works out. This may not be his full time job, but a min level of customer service would be nice...

I'll keep you posted on my results.

I wish I saw this thread earlier because I'm having the same problems with Brewster Brown. I ordered a brewpot and chiller over 3 weeks ago and never received any shipping notifications, email replies, or responses to my phone calls. He never responded to the paypal claim either.

I really wanted that equipment too.

Paypal didn't come through for me. They decided the claim in my favor, but they couldn't get me a refund.

depends if you are talking about the throw away oxygen bottles or not. If that is the case:
Oxygenation Partial System | MoreBeer

If your are talking about with a adjustable regulator, I found ebay the best source. I got a 20CF tank for $35 and a medical regulator for $30

Good LORD I'm glad I found this thread, and that you posted that link, read all 22 pages, have never ordered anything from there but am quite angry with it all. And I would be totally amazed, and even more pissed if that man is still doing business.

Someone probably posted this already but back on topic:
The cheapest (good quality) hops around, with fast, reliable shipping = www.farmhousebrewingsupply.com

Sounds like kegkits all over again. If it was me, I would stay away.
