Default Best Extract Kit?

Just curious....what's the best Extract Kit you've ever brewed?

I'm looking for some suggestions for my next brew.

thanks.

It depends in what you like. My 2 favorite extract recipes where from Austin homebrew. Bavarian hefe and American IPA. Both where great!

I enjoy most styles of beer, with the exception of IPA's and the really hoppy stuff. My preferred choice is a brown ale, but I'll try anything.

Browns are one of my favorite also. I made a great nut brown from Austin. Also, in the joy of homebrewing there is a great extract recipe for a roasted brown ale. I am making it this week. Off the top of my head it is:
.5 lbs roasted barley
.25 lbs black patent
6 lbs amber dme
1.5 oz northern brewer (60)
.25 oz cascade (10)
s-04 yeast
I don't have the book with me, but I'm pretty sure that is it. I thought it was great!

I've been very happy with the kits I've down from MidWest Supplies... http://www.midwestsupplies.com . The Smooth Nut Brown is now being consumed and I had friends tell me it was damn good.

The absolute best I've ever brewed had to me the Brewers Best Russian Imperial Stout. My girlfriend and I brewed it and kicked the keg within a week and a half. My neighbor came knocking at my door a couple times with his stein out saying how he was having dreams about it at night.

you can't go wrong with Austin Homebrew Supply. I love the AHS Bavarian Hefeweizen... and every other kit I have bought from them has been first rate as well.

Just drew my first pint of Chocolate Milk Stout (from Northern Brewer). Mmmmm....

Have also had good results with the Carribou Slobber, Cherry Stout, and the Three Hearted Ale. (Still waiting for the yeast to finish eating the Grateful Dead Ale that I brewed recently...)

I am tempted to brew up more of the same kits but I keep moving on to new ones to expand my "horizons."

So many beers, so little liver...
