I'm thinking about doing some experimenting with no boil kits. Where is the best place to buy them?

All you really need is hopped extract and yeast, right?

Probably, but I'm looking for kits that are style specific for review and possible publication of my findings.

I only did one or two of the Mr Beer kits before I branched out, but that's how I started.  I received the starter pack as a gift and then picked up more of the refill kits at one of the kitchen stores at the Outlet mall.  I think it's called Kitchen Connection?

A couple of years ago they had 5 or 6 "styles", they probably have more now.  They are simple but they work.

I haven't seen any hopped extracts that weren't in kits. Where would I find them?

Coopers or Muntons have hopped extracts you can buy from several online stores

Mr Beer is an option, I think they are made by Cooper's, but I'm looking for several different brands: Coopers, Munton's, Brewferm, Mountmellick, John Bull etc. to compare.

Those two are fairly easy to locate, on Amazon if nowhere else.
