I ordered these 3 kits below yesterday from northern brewer they seemed like a decent spread. I am trying to try picking different types of beers when I brew so I can begin to experience all the differences between the beers.

Qty 1 Sweet Stout Extract Kit
Qty 1 Scottish Wee Heavy Extract Kit
Qty 1 Honey Weizen Extract Kit

Has anyone ever tried any of these beers? If so what were your impressions

Never tried one of those, but I have done many kits from NB. They always turn out great.

I've done the sweet stout, and well it didn't turn out so good. It tasted like molasses. I actually had to mix it with a different beer to be able to drink it. I go through northern brewer alot and don't know if that beer just got infected, or if it was just a bad batch. I still love NB and would always recommend them, but that beer just didn't turn out that good for me, let me know if you have better luck with it.

Primary: Pale Ale
Secondary: Gint's Two Kidney Ale, Oktoberfest, Conway's Irish Ale Clone, Shiraz
Bottled: Apfelwein, Green Apple Reisling
Kegged:Phat Tyre
