I've made two batches of beer so far.
My first was made using a Brewer's Best Scotch Ale kit.
My second was made using a Brewe's Best Irish Stout kit.
Both kits involve boiling grains and hops to produce the finished product.
I like that the kits include everything needed - caps, priming sugar, hops, grains and malt.
I feel that they produce a finer product, but I haven't tried one of the simpler kits yet.
