Default best beer ingredient kits?

I am brand new at this. My first ever homebrew has been in the fermenter for a week. It's a true brew amber ale extract that came with an equipment kit my wife bought me for xmas. Well I want to get another beer going as soon as I get that one bottled in the next week or so, so my question is, where is the best place to buy ingredient kits online? I want to do a partial mash for my next one ... maybe a cream ale or something pretty smooth that my wife might drink ... any thoughts?

I used to use Northern Brewer's and Austin Homebrew's kits. They were both very good.

Agreed with the above. I'll also thrown in Midwest supplies.

I've gotten kits from each of the three and haven't been disappointed in any of them. Welcome to the homebrewing circle!

I have been happy with the kits from more beer- a large selection and detailed instructions for the new brewer.

Do a price comparison with shipping included. You may be surprised at how much or how little you save with free shipping.
