Default Stout kits?

So, I bought a brewing kit and it didn't go well. I really like stouts so im hoping to find a ingredient kit for some type of snout. Any advice on what to try and where to get it?

I suspect you meant Stout. Check out Northern Brewer. They were one of my favorites as a beginner.

http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f68/doub...-snout-126638/ This appears to be a good one have not brewed this snout before.

lol darn spell check making us say snout instead of stout.

I've had great luck with Northern Brewer's sweet stout kits. I have heard good things about midwest supplies as well as austin homebrew supplies. check out the vendor page and find something you like.

No worries buddy. I spelled Northern as Nothern in my response, lol. I like Northern Brewer mostly because the site is so well laid out. It's easy to navigate, awesome pictures and really describes what you get. Plus the extract is top notch. I've never had a bad experience.

What's the difference between Extract and brew in a bag?

Extract refers to powdered malt extract. Brew in a bag is where you steep specialty grains inside of a bag in your boil kettle. Usually this is done in sort of a partial mash fashion but some people go 100% all grain brew in a bag.

Looking at these. Anyone know if they come with yeast? And if it's liquid or dry?

Surprisingly NB doesn't mention whether or not the recipe kit comes with yeast or not. It honestly fails to mention exactly what it comes with at all haha. But given the product reviews on the ones I looked at, I wouldn't worry about it. But if I had to guess, I would say they just include dry yeast.

My first was a Cooper's Irish Stout kit. It turned out pretty lame, so I did a load of reading and came up with my own recipe, which worked out really well. Haven't gone back to canned kits.
