Are you especially fond of the particular protocol you've been
using?  I use a very simple and extremely cheap method for tail
preps, but I've never used the Promega kit so I don't know if
they are similar at all.  The DNA I recover is used for PCR 
typing of our mice, and nothing else, and I'm not certain it
would be appropriate to use for other things.  It's clean enough
to give us results, though, and doesn't take long.
