I enjoyed Midwest's "Octane IPA" recipe kit when I brewed it last year.

(Now with additional octane!)

My favorite extract was the Norther Brewer American Wheat w/ 3lbs Wildflower Honey added @5 min. It was ready fast - 2 weeks primary, bottled w/ cooper's carb drops, very tasty after only 1 week in bottle.

Has anyone tried the Barrel Porter from NB and used Rum in place of the Maker's Mark? Sounds interesting

Well I've got a coopers lager in the fermentor right now and I hope that it tastes good. I was thinking of doing a brewers best ipa for my next brew.

I did it like 4 times over the years. I see my LHBS has the Brewer's Best Imperial Nut Brown Ale now. I have been tempted to give that a shot as doing imperials in my 5G mash tun become tricky.

I have done the Innkeeper from Northern Brewer, and loved it. It is better, in my opinion, the greener it is. I also have done the bourbon barrell porter, used makers mark that had cloves, cinnamon sticks, vanilla beans and nutmeg soaking in it for over a month. Fantastic after about 8 months of conditioning. I am getting ready to do anyother batch, and age it for as long as I can stand. Also, I tried a patersbier kit that my friend made, and it was great. I think northern brewer is where he got it. Great summer beer, I might get one to brew for the summer as well.

I really enjoyed NBrewers Lake Waldo Amber when I was doing extract. I am making the AG version tomorrow actually.

So what is the cost of these kits that everyone orders online. I have done the unhopped kits and added my own hops and specialty grains. Most have come out pretty good.

Question for those who don't like coopers or muntons, is this a dislike for quality based on following the cans instructions, or overall dislike?

The instructions I got from local brewers supply has me boiling extracts both canned and unhopped for 30 mins. Just wondering if that would change taste/overall opinion.
