Good for you Chicco! I don't have any issues with using kits. I brew A/G, Mini-Mashes, and tweaked out Kits depending on how much time I have, what kind of beer I want, and whether or not I am keeping it for myself...sharing with friends...or giving away as gifts. You can make some pretty great beers by tweaking your kits -- a good beer is a good beer no matter how it is made.

So far after 3 brews , Ive had the best success with Black Rock from New Zealand. As a newbie brewer batch # 1 Pale ale brewed As pe package instructions was drinkable. Batch #3 with 1 kg of lme and only 300 g of dextrose **shudder**( yes still a newb) and dry hopped with an ounce of Cascade is reasonably tasty. ...baby steps...

I have had good luck with the OBK kits in the past, enough of them that you could brew one a month and not repeat one in about 2yrs.

I have moved on to creating my own extract recipes now, but they are easy to use, and taste great!

As an HVAC student (I gave up trying to get into the trade at this point), I can second this. I've seen inside some nasty water heaters. My Brita gets LOTS of use.

But now that I'm in Ottawa again, I'm trying to work up to BIAB/AG. Tried to get in on another member's 10 gallon brewday on monday, but was rejected. So much for sitting in and learning :(

Back to topic, the ones I've had the best results with are Coopers and Muntons.
I've never understood the policy against "necro threads" on almost every forum. Why tell us to use the search function for a particular topic, then complain when an older thread has a new post in it?

That's because I was learning and didn't want anyone to see/share my shameful noob experience!

You're invited to my next one, which'll be in 2-3 weeks. Making the following:
