"That kit is an excellent choice. If it's cheaper there, go with it. For your first batch, just get a style you like and try it out. Don't worry to much about the fine details."

Hello all.  I am planning on doing home beer brewing this fall and was hoping that I could get some advice if anyone has experience.  While I have read on the matter, I am struggling to pick out a starter kit.  Does anyone have any suggestions for starter kits?  Is it better to go with a basic kit or a deluxe kit when starting?  Finally, which company has the best ingredients?-StevanSee More
