Default Good Bitter Ingredient Kit?

I am looking for a good kit to make a Bitter. Has anyone used a kit for this? Any favorites?

Easy-peasy. Bitter is one of the simplest ales to brew, and is quite satisfying. You don't really need a kit; just take a recipe to your LHBS and get the stuff!

Here's a good recipe, from right here on HBT.

My recipe follows:

If by chance you are looking for an ESB I have done the morebeer extract kit and thought it was very good.
