Default AHS Extract Kit recommendations

I really like the selection and prices at Austin Homebrew. Can anyone recommend some of their kits that came out really, really well?


I don't care about the style, just that it met or exceeded your expectations

I've tried a few of them- the Fat Tire clone was really good. I can't remember which particular ones I've made, but I've never been disappointed with any of them.

I like the West Coast Pale Ale a lot, as well as the American Wheat. For extract, I prefer AHS's lighter colored beers, because they use amber and dark extracts for darker beers, and I don't like the way those extracts taste. An exception is the Mild kit, which I liked quite a lot.

There is a review section on their site that is really nice. ranks the kits buy how often sold and then has comments

I've brewed their Bavarian Hefe and it came out amazing. And by amazing i mean that when my dad tried it, he was reminded of when he was stationed in Germany amazing.

Maybe I'm blind, but I don't see it. Where is it on the site?

Thanks

I found it by accident also - they SHOULD make it larger so more people see it.

It's under

I can say that I have been pleased with the results from each AHS kit I have brewed. Pick your favorite style or beer and get brewing.
