Just found your thread because I don't usually look in the American Beer & wine folder.
I'm from ENGLAND
and yes I brew from kits. Brewferm Belgian kits every time although I've done a Bru-paks Brewers Choice kit IPA earlier this year.
A few years ago I used to brew with extract, hops etc. in a big pan on the cooker. After a house move and the stuff getting packed away and my job I had a break from brewing for about 6 years and started again this year. I'll probably get back to extract brewing eventually. I'd love to go full mash but the expense and lack of space puts me off. Maybe one day.
