Default What are some great session beer kits?

What are some great, fast session beer extract kits to have in your pipeline while waiting for your other beers?

Brewer's best red ale is a great, simple kit IMO, although make sure to get a decent yeast, I can't remember what it comes with. It was my first beer ever and it was awesome.

Im giving this one a bump.

Im just looking for some good easy fast kits to make while I wait for my other beers to finish. Something that tastes good but doesnt take a long time to make.

Go to LHBS and ask for their best selling kit.

The AHS Session kits have been well-regarded. What sort of style resonates most with your palate?

Hefe's peak very quickly. Even if bottle conditioned they'll be good in under a month. I don't know if you'd consider it a session beer but I know I like to put them away.

Actually, I brewed a Hefe kit last night. It was the Hank's Hefe from Midwest.
This thing took off like a rocket. Big head of Krausen and airlock bubbling like crazy in just 4 hours from pitching!!!

The Belgian Saison from this series is quite nice. I also second the advice to try a hefe. That tends to be our goto style when we want something quick and easy.

True Brew's Canadian Ale kit is easy and also goes down very easy.
