You may need to stir up the yeast in the bottles. Swirl the bottles a little bit, then let them sit upside down for a day or two. Then swirl them again and put them right side up.

Brooklyn Home Brew Store are doing a custom order of Fresh Hops and will be delivering to their store tonight at 5pm for immediate pick up. The Fresh Hops are only good for 24 hours so you would need some time available tonight or all day tomorrow to brew. I am taking the day off tomorrow to brew ...
I have my yeast starter going over the weekend so I will be bubbling and brewing all day tomorrow. I am doing two consecutive brews from 6am to 10pm.

I'd stay away from Brewers Best or the canned kits. You have no idea how long they've been sitting on a shelf at the local brew store. If the extract is old, the beer is going to taste like crap.
Buy a recipe kit from one of the big online suppliers. Northern Brewer, Midwest, or Austin Homebrew. They sell a lot of malt extract, so you know the extract in the kit that you buy from them is going to be fresh.
