hello, i wanna brew at home my own beer. however the problem is that im gonna do it for the first time and so, some friends advised me to try the beginners kits. i do not really like the idea of producing something that is almost ready. i prefer brewing something personal, genuine and as i like it. i am looking something like an american style of IPA.
do you also recommend the beer kits? is it very difficult to brew it without a kit?

thanks

you mean materials like this? where you put just water and it is ready in 3-4 weeks? http://home-brew.co/2011/02/13/brewing-beer-with-malt-extract/

basically i have no clue what to do. they told me that a brewing kit for beginners is the best for starting. i just dont like the mainstream beers that are on market and i dont like lager. i didnt find any craft or american microbreweries kit...

Based on your place ratings, you seem to be in Cyprus. I would try to find an on-line retailer who will ship you a kit of equipment similar to this one:

and then an ingredient kit along the lines of one of these:

that should be a good start.

so you believe that a brewing kit ( but not a commercial mainstream eg coopers)would be the best solution
?
