Default I want in!

I'm about to purchase a home brew kit and start brewing my own suds. I have a kit in mind but would like some imput on the best kits out there ( under $200 ) that will give me the best chance to succeed.
Thanks

I agree on the congrats. Buying a deluxe kit seems to be the best alternative. If your like me and many others you will eventually add more and more

I also bought a kit similar to the one above. It's a great place to start and will get you what you need to get the ball rolling.

I have found Midwest usually has the best prices. This one gives you plenty of fermentation containers to create and manage a "pipeline" so that once you start, you will never run out. Use the remainder of your cash to buy a 3 gallon or greater brewpot, and a couple of easy starter kits.

Then GO MAKE BEER!

Grapestompers, in Laurel Springs, NC has a really good kit that has some things most other kits don't, like a bottle tree. Just a shade over $200 but it's a great kit. I shopped around for at least a year & looked at A LOT of different kits. The equipment kit also comes with a beer kit of your choice.

I bought Midwest's intermediate "everything" kit. I haven't used the carboy that came with it yet and I'm beginning to think I might not ever.

That said, it was a good price AND Midwest has really good customer service. The kit I ordered came with the wrong size pot. I called and they sent the right one immediately.

I don't see a bottling bucket with that package (might be there, I just don't see it). Also note that the beer kits are a no-boil variety. I'm assuming that means pre-hopped canned beer.

Neither of these things are deal breakers, but they do mean that their kits differ substantially from Midwest or Northern Brewers setups.
