I haven't done any price comparisons. The prices are reasonable.

I don't have a favorite kit. I tried a couple from Steinfillers. I've been trying different recipes from Jamil's book lately. The American Brown Ale from "Brewing Classic Styles" is my current favorite. Just bottled my third batch.

My one recommendation to any homebrewer would be an autosiphon.

Addison Homebrew Provisions is pretty good, and as stated Eric is an awesome guy. I havent been in a month now, so I dont know if it changed, but they have DME only! So if your a LME guy.... be warned.

Culver City has an amazing selection of grains, supplies, yeast ect.. But its an hour drive without traffic! But its probably the most complete store Ive been too.

There is also on in Long Beach that I went to once and I cant remember the name, but its close to the L.B. Airport. Stein Fillers?? I think, anyway they have great "kits" that I tried a while ago. I did a Belgian Double that was FANTASTIC!

I am glad to hear you say that because I recentl bottled their dubbel and I am going to try my first one on Christmas.
I like Steinfillers a lot, I also tried their Scotch ale (amazing) and I brewed their Christmas beer and quite a few of my friends called the beer "amazing" and "incredible"

I live in the LBC so Steinfillers is my go to store, although I work in Santa Ana so may have to check out the others down that way after work. I'm strictly an extract brewer at this point due to time constraints with having to little ones, I can squeeze 2 batches into one session and be cleaned up in 4hrs. I've liked everything I've brewed from there and if it was off it was my fault. I do go online from time to time and I agree their equipment is a bit pricey.
