Your resolve is strong now, but you cannot resist the force forever!
I went from Mr. Beer (mostly bad experiences because of "bargin" old brews/yeasts.), to Coopers kits, to kits from AHS, to my first non kit recipe (Bee Cave Pale Ale). It just keeps getting better and better. I have two brews fermenting right now, staggered bottling days. When I've had both fermenters empty, I started to feel a little anxious... I've tried more types of beers since I started brewing than I can list off the top of my head.
