Oh, and yes, it's an extract kit. I'm still new to this, this is only my fifth batch. My next kit is a custom one from from the store I buy from though, an "Easy Blonde Ale", and it will be my first time using steeping grains and a yeast nutrient.
I plan on taking this slow, and not getting into all grain yet. I want to get really good at this extract brewing first and feel real comfortable with it before I advance to that stage. I'm 44, and learned over the years that taking your time and doing it right is better than trying too hard too fast. So far, I've had batches my friends all like and no bad batches yet (knock on wood)
