By easier in the brewing process, I think it's the same. Not having to worry about making sure you can get the ingredients, etc. then yes it's easier.
It's all about what you are comfortable with. If you want to do the AHS one, do it. It's AHS so it's going to be a quality kit (hasn't been sitting on a shelf for 3 years).
