Which extract kits are your favorites? I've only tried a few, but so far I like Cooper's Bitter the best (with 3lbs of light DME).

i had great success with True Brew's Red Ale. i don't know if they still make them, but in the middle '90s it was my fav.
I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotamy!

I made a great Irish Ale with the kit from Midwest of the same name. My very first brew was their Autumn Amber Ale that also turned out very good.

But half the fun is trying them all for yourself and seeing what you like. As has been said elsewhere on these boards, the research is part of the fun!

I've had good success with Brewers Best kits. The Red Ale they had came out a bit to yeasty tasting for me but then again I could of done that =). Their Oktoberfest is to die for.
Tiny bubbles... In my beer... Makes me happy... Makes me want to cheer!

Northern Brewer has been very solid for me. Their Caribou Slobber was the first beer that got rave reviews from all the men and women who drank it, and actually had me surprised I made it.
