I started with Northern Brewer for my first extract kits. They are packed very well with very nice instructions. I have ordered some all grain IPA kits from NB, but wasn't as pleased with them. I feel that Austin Homebrew has the superior all grain kits...The flat rate shipping is nice too. As previously posted, they have a ton of commercial clones. I ordered a handful of them late last summer. I think I got the Sam Adams Octoberfest, Breckenridge Christmas, Anchor Christmas (I think it was vintage 1998), and the two White House beers....the two White House beers were, meh. I live in Ohio, so I wouldn't recommend ordering liquid yeast from the heart of Texas now that the weather is heating up.
