Just kind of curious what kits are good what you would different to the kit. Made Grand cru and Irish Stout. Irish Stout didnt even have a chance it only lasted a couple of wks. Grand Cru gets better as time goes on. I want to try a wheat beer but just dont know which one any commits would be great

Caribou Slobber is Northern Brewer and it is too one of my favorites.

Amber ale was the first kit I ever brewed and it really was delicious. I imagine it will only be better now that I have more brews under my belt. Plus, it's one of the cheapest kits on the site.

Their Hop Head DIPA turned out soooo good. The best DIPA kit I've made. Their Maple Dark Ale also turned out well (I added more syrup than it called for).

When you did the amber ale how long did you let it sit in the primary/secondary and how long did you let it bottle condition? Just wondering because I have it in a secondary right now.

Well it was my first batch ever and I think it's been the best one so far. I brewed it in April and I think I had it in the primary for three weeks, maybe four. I forget. No secondary. I don't do secondaries. It fermented at like 68. I bottled it and let it sit for a week before I tried one since it was my first batch. I was very anxious. It was drinkable, but it definitely got better after 2-3 weeks.
