American Style Pale Ale recipe in Introduction to Homebrewing

Hey folks,

I've found the Zymurgy - Introduction to Homebrewing issue to be a great resource of information so far; I plan on using the American Style Pale Ale recipe outlined in the guide for my first brew and I need a bit of help identifying which Coopers kit is being called for.  The recipe states 1 can [3.75 lb (1.7 kg)] Coopers “Bitter” Brewing Kit (includes a packet of yeast), I've done some searching for said kit and I'm wondering if this is kit being referenced: http://us.diybeer.com/Australian_Bitter_p/896.htm

Thanks.

Do you have a local homebrew store nearby?  If so, I would check them out and see what kits they have available for your first brew.  Also check out the kits from http://www.northernbrewer.com/ and http://morebeer.com/. 

jtperreault:
I'll take a look at those two links, thanks.

Regarding a local homebrew store, one opened a few weeks ago and I planned on stopping there for the malt extract and hops.  I'll see what they've got for kits as well.  I tend to try following directions to the tee, might not be necessary...?

Get something like this:  http://www.northernbrewer.com/shop/extra-pale-ale-extract-kit.html

Or the equivalent at your LHBS and follow the instructions.  I'd opt for the liquid yeast but don't bother to smack it a couple of days in advance.  Maybe just a couple of hours.

And when you're not sure of something post back here and we'll help you out.

jtperreault:
Right on.  Thanks much!
