I really like the selection and prices at Austin Homebrew. Can anyone recommend some of their kits that came out really, really well?


I don't care about the style, just that it met or exceeded your expectations

I've tried a few of them- the Fat Tire clone was really good. I can't remember which particular ones I've made, but I've never been disappointed with any of them.

I like the West Coast Pale Ale a lot, as well as the American Wheat. For extract, I prefer AHS's lighter colored beers, because they use amber and dark extracts for darker beers, and I don't like the way those extracts taste. An exception is the Mild kit, which I liked quite a lot.

I've brewed their Bavarian Hefe and it came out amazing. And by amazing i mean that when my dad tried it, he was reminded of when he was stationed in Germany amazing.

Maybe I'm blind, but I don't see it. Where is it on the site?

Thanks

I found it by accident also - they SHOULD make it larger so more people see it.

It's under

I can say that I have been pleased with the results from each AHS kit I have brewed. Pick your favorite style or beer and get brewing.
