I've had nothing but good experiences with MoreBeer over the past 15 years. And given my location in northern New England, their new warehouse in PA has really increased the speed of shipment arrivals.

   I've had a number of mispicks from MB, but no more frequently than any other outfit and MB has always been very good about correcting their mistakes. A couple times they've mistakenly sent me an extra bag of grain or something I didn't order, I always inform them when this happens cuz I don't want to mess up my beer karma, they always say just keep it.
    As someone else previously stated, MB in my mind is a great model of what an online retailer should be - which makes me worry that they will be purchased by some big outfit and systematically ruined.
I spent most of my money on beer, tools and guns, the rest I foolishly squandered on stupid stuff!

Yup, AB is on the prowl!

My latest ordering experience.
Ordered 4 of the AEB Italy kegs.  I have 7 already, very expensive but SUPER nice and should last forever.
I was not amused by what I received.  New kegs should be en route, but I'll likely miss a spund window on my Pils. Oh well, mistakes happen.

Those look nasty.

The state of the remaining original cornies left in the wild is getting pretty grim.  But I've never seen anyone sell them like that.  LHBS doesn't address the insides, but they at least seem to hose down the outsides.

I ordered used cornies from them once.  Immediately sent them back, purchased AEB Italy kegs and haven't looked back.  The used kegs I ordered from them years ago were in similar shape. 
Just checked the tracking, looks like they're shipping the replacements from CA instead of PA, so I'll miss the spund on both my Pils and Märzen.  Bummer.

I will never buy used corny kegs again.  They can be such a pain in the ass.  I just sold almost all of my old ones and replaced them with brand new kegs.

Yep.  Well worth the extra $$

AEB's are great and also torpedo kegs are a good value for the dollar.
