Default Brewers Best Kits

I am going to embark on my third brew and am probably just going to buy another Brewers Best Kit. Are there any favorites out there? My first brew was their Imperial Pale Ale, I am still letting it condition in the bottles.

Also, has anybody tried John Palmer's recipes that he lists in the back of his book, "How to Brew?"

+1 for the amber ale. I made for my wife, and most people who don't like really hoppy beer tend to like it a lot.

Default +1 Stout.

Never tried the BB Stout, But EVERYONE should make a nice stout in the first 5 batches.

I've brewed four BB kits and they all came out great. The Irish Stout is pretty good!

I did the BB english brown ale as my first beer. I like how it came out, others have said the same. It keeps getting better as it carbs in the bottles.
