I brewed up an Irish Red Ale kit from my LHBS last weekend. Pulled some out today to check the FG (1.011), and chilled and tasted the sample.

No hop aroma at all, which I've now learned is normal...

AG is the difference. Extract usually runs about $4/pound, bulk is $3. At 6lbs per brew about, that's $6 bucks saved per batch.

I got the $69 one, because I wanted to get started as cheaply as possible. But that's probably a better kit. I bought an auto-siphon and would like another fermenter like the kit has.
