Default Northern Brewer or AHS

I'm looking to brew a Irish Red and a German Alt and wonder who's kits are better?

I've made the NB kit, but switch the order of the hops (on purpose). Turned out fantastic.

NB in this case, they are a little closer and they aren't swamped with orders like AHS is. You'll get it quicker from NB. Both are can't miss as far as quality.

Recipe:
Willamette @ 60
Fuggle @ 30


The switch I did:
Fuggle @ 60
Willamette @ 30

I'm sure it would have been great the "original" way too, but I get the tip from someone on this board.

I primaried for 4 weeks @ 64º, no secondary. Bottled and it was gone in a month.

I tried an AHS Irish Red all grain kit a few months ago and was very pleased with how it turned out. One of my favorite beers to date. I have not however tried any other Irish Red kits out there though, so I guess I can't compare it.

I have the NB Irish Red extract kit in primary right now (SWMBO's favorite). I've made it a few times and it has never let me down.
