Default Happy Christmas from a Newbie

Happy Christmas everyone!!

TOTAL newbie here, just recently converted my garage into a full functional Pub/Bar etc (working pumps with cooler etc), along with the mountains of pub merch I've hoarded over the past year, I obtained 5 x 30cm high glass "bell jars", and a book on brewing...so I figured I'd give it a go for use in the Pub/bar.

So I will be checking this forum a lot for tips and for a lot of help!!!

As for personal details, I'm 26 from Norfolk, UK, and I'm a Bassist in touring Rock/Blues band..

Cheers!!

Darbs.

Yeah, the mrs is a painter and decorator, so the stain should look good (otherwise divorce...) but yeah mahogany I believe...

So, I was thinking if attempting a Cider for the first brew, is that wise? What's best for a beginner?

Cider couldnt be easier. Pour juice in bucket. pitch yeast. wait patiently. If you want a good product in a little less time, try a caramel apple graff :-) i just racked this to secondary and its awesome.
