I'm a newb but both Brewers Best Kits I've used, Cream Ale and IPA, have turned out nicely. Enjoying my Cream Ale as we speak!

So far every kit I've gotten from Midwestsupplies has been great.
Smooth Nut Brown ale, Liberty Cream ale, Oatmeal stout, there are a few others I have going from midwest but haven't tasted yet.
Hophead double IPA, and Swartzbier lager. I have made the smooth nut brown a few time and never lasts long.

Yeah... that Smooth Nut Brown is a great base. I actually added toasted hazelnuts for the last 5 minutes of the boil and then a chocolate hazelnut extract to the secondary and I've gotten nothing but great comments on it. The guy who brought me in to the fold was impressed and wants it to be in regular rotation.

I vote Bourbon Barrel Porter from Northern Brewer. The only extract brew I've made that I can't tell it's extract. It's awesome. I'm trying very hard to let some age for winter.

Old post...I know, but I'm looking for MORE suggestions for a noob to get his feet wet.
Looking for a kit that I can steep some grains and add my own hops.

Can always start your own thread rather than going zombie ;-P

Anyway, try any Brewers Best kit. Go to their web site and get the brew instructions for what you may be interested in. The kits have all you need. From there, fire up Beersmith, or whatever, and go to town with alterations. H

This is my LHBS and I have to say I have been more than pleased with their kits. Great original recipes with plenty of steeping grains and hops depending on what kind of beer you want to brew. At least check them out. You can find the link for each brew that shows you the recipe. That is pretty original in my opinion. Great service and great brews.
