I looked at one of local beer stores but they only had the ingredients that people who really make there own beer use.
if you buy one can of malt extract syrup from a local shop, that is perfect for a half batch of beer. a full batch of beer needs two of those cans.
you'd need to buy a couple ounces of hops and boil it all in some water, but you can certainly use the same stuff that "people who really make their own beer" use.
