Default What brand of solder paste?

Hi all. I have ordered a couple of the EZDAC kits and I was wondering what type of solder paste to order to solder the SMT parts with . I have located several different brands but I thought I would ask here for some opinions. Preferably It would come in a syringe with a 2mm tip. This will be my first foray into reflow soldering so any suggestions or advice will be appreciated.

I prefer Stannol solder.
But be shure to buy flux as well.
Eventually have a look at this small movie:

G, I used solder paste from Stencils Unlimited:

No Clean Solder Paste NC650 250 Gram Jar (NC650-250G) = $25.00

Good luck with the DAC!

Thank you for the reply and I will watch the video but I was talking about a solder paste to use with hot air reflow. The solder paste has the flux added in with the solder. I'm sure you know that though. I did find some solder paste through Amazon.com that I might try.

Sorry!
I overlooked that you were talking about paste.
Btw. Stannol is still very high regarded as both supplier of normal solder, flux and paste.
