Default Hello from NC

Whats up folks. Like many I've been lurking for awhile. Its always my go to place when I need to read up on something brew related. I've brewed extract kits so far, total of 5 and a buddy who is always around to help drink it decided to buy a kit. However he bought me an all grain kit, so I figured its time to register as I've got some serious reading (and asking) to do.

Its a toss up between northerns Caribou Slobber and Brewers Best Pumpkin Porter W/ a bit of pumpkin and brown sugar added. I order all my stuff through Northern most of the time. We have a LBS that has a small supply of brewers best kits and the basics in hand but prefer the freshness that I taste in northern kits.

I appreciate it guys. I'm hoping to piece together the needed supplies to go from extract to all grain. I'm sure I'll be begging for help and advice soon.

Extract brewer here as well. I used to live in Asheville. I will be doing my first Partial Mash here soon (probably next brew) but I have always steeped.

Its a great hobby to get into, and you just get better with practice.

Man do I miss NC. Illinois suck when it comes to beer. Too close to Budweiser, all of the distributors suck. I miss Highland, Yeungling, Sweetwater, Catawba, Duck-Rabbit, to name a few that I really miss. Just can't get those here in Illinois.
