Only time will tell. Change isn't always good or always bad so give them some time to work things out.
I'm keeping an open mind.

I heard that Coopers will be making all the refills now and they will no longer have the Booster. I think this will result in a better end product, but I personally quickly moved away from their refills because they are overpriced.

Yeah, my wife bought me a Mr Beer kit for Christmas and after four batches I jumped to 5 gallon, AG batches. It was a great starting point, but my beer is much better now.

I can't imagine the booster will disappear.
Coopers currently sells 2 versions of booster (enhancer 1 and 2). Why wouldn't they want to sell more of their product because the recipes are scaled to a 2 gallon fermentor?
