Debian Apt Repository

I'm needing some help. My test lab is not connected to the Internet, (this is on purpose) but in order to test different configurations for clients, I am constantly reinstalling OS's. It is important that my test lab have exactly the same package versions as my clients. Instead of download, burning to CD then re-installing to my servers I would like to configure a laptop as an APT repository that I could take to my office, update the packages then take to my test lab and load directly to the servers from there.

My question is this, how do you go about setting this up? I know there is a tutorial out there becuase I have read it before, but I can't seem to find in now.

This is APT-GET not APT-RPM which seems to be everywhere on the 'net.
