I suggest you take a look at the kits from northern brewer. I have made a few of these with good results so far.

The LME they use comes in a milk jug and they crank out a pretty high volume so it is much fresher than what you get in a can. All their kits come with a liquid wyeast activator pack as well.

My first two batches were the BB Oktoberfest, and the IPA, both were very well recieved. The IPA doesn't end up being too bitter, it would be a good one to add some more hops too if you felt the need.

another +1 for the american amber. I made that one about 3 months ago and am now just finishing the last of the batch and each day it tastes better.

Both the Irish Red and the Stout are great! The Red was my favorite of the BB kits i have made so far.

I did the English brown ale. It turned out very light and crisp, but a bit watery. Was around 4% abv. I know I usually brew and like heavier maltier beers, but it was a real crowd pleaser for friends and family who like something more commercial and easier to drink. Carbonates and looks real nice. Like a more hoppy newcastle.

I have the American pale ael that I dry hopped in the secondary, conditioning in bottles right now and the nut Brown in primary. They are my first two batches. Gonna wait to see how the Ale tastes before brewing any more to make sure my process is ok. Next will be Edworts Apfelwein.

Glad to hear all the responses on the American Amber.

Just brewed a batch of this yesterday.

My only concern with an Amber is that they disappear too fast in my household. Trying to get enough done so that I can take extra time Lagering an Oktoberfest.

My first two batches have been BB kits. I've got the IPA bottled and waiting and the bock in the primary. I tried the IPA after a week of conditioning just to see how it was coming along and it was better than expected.
