So I am new to this hobby with one successful kit completed and consumed . My question(s) is/are on the apparent discrepancies in some of the kits readily available on the internet. Example Brewers Best kits seem to conform to the,.... all kits are ready in 4-6 weeks (Belgian Tripels, Russian Imperial Stouts etc...). However, the same kits from say, Austin (Belgian Tripels, Russian Imperial Stouts) are suggesting 9-12 months!!! Can someone please advise why the wildly extreme difference in timelines? What could possibly happen in 12 months that doesn't occur in 4-6 weeks. And finally, is the final product difference that noticeable and worth this wait? Sorry for the NOOB question but in order to experience the answer myself i would have to wait at least 12 months and i don't have the patience .
