I'd like to know what's the best 'kit' that one can buy for homebrewing.
One that includes everything you'll need. Except ingredients. The one I
like best so far is the one from HOPTECH. Any recomendations?

...so look for a decent ingredient kit - one with seperate items...believe it
or not, I picked up a "Brewer's Best" Classic Pale Ale kit at my local brew
supply house (shameless plug: Tully's in Verona, NJ - no affiliation, just a
very satisfied customer) as my second batch kit, and it has turned out to be
the best extract kit I have brewed!...too many people wanting beer and I'm a
greedy SOB... :)

Original Poster Followup:
Well, after much shopping around for the perfect 'Kit' I went down to
the local brew store and bought everything separate.
This is what I got and what I paid:
2 Glass 6 1\2 gal carboys
1 Lauter ton, strainer
1 large grain bag
all necessary tubing for transfer and bottling
including a springloaded bottle filler
2 water\air locks with *** plugs
filling bucket with spigot
Paid $99.34 with tax.
Did I do good or what?
Now all I need is an 8 gallon pan for the actually process! :)
