What Brewers Best Extract Kits do you like?
There is a new local place that sells Brewers Best Kits. What kits have you tried that you recommend?

The summer ale turned out great. Kinda like shock top. I hear the milk stout kit is pretty good too. wanna try that one as I think left hand brewing milk stout is great.

All of their kits I have tried have made good beer, if you just go with your favorite style, you should enjoy it unless you are an extreme beer snob, IMHO. Well, except maybe the American light, friends that like that style that I have made it for didn't seem quite as excited about it as other styles I have made for friends. German Oktoberfest was a huge hit at a party a couple years back, everyone seems to really like the uniqueness of it even if it wasn't their normal style.

I've done both the Imperial Blonde Ale and the Summer Ale. Both turned out great.

I have not had a bad Brewers Best Kit.....My most recent was the Whisky Barrel Stout. Awesome beer. I followed the directions except for the wood chips. I did not boil them like they said, I soaked them in bourbon and added to the secondary. Turned out great!

I have done the American Amber and Kölsch. Both were well received but I got a lot of compliments on the Kölsch, even though its not a true Kölsch due to the Nottingham yeast. Still, a damn good beer that I will make again.

Only done the American pale ale, which I dry hopped with cascade and it is quite good.

Should have said I have tried several batches of the American pale ale, no changes or additions, and turn out great every time.

My first homebrew ever was the English Brown Ale. I picked it cause it was beginners level. It turned out great and everyone loved it.

I am on my 4th BB kit. All have turned out great. I've done the Summer Ale, Pumpkin Spice, IPA, English Brown in the fermenter now. Not sure what's next. Maybe the red ale? Tried a buddies that was good.
