 To all Beginners

I see alot of beginners on the boards, I havent been on them in a few months because summertime in Florida = busy at the job lol. Let me save you all a few weeks of your life and stress one word

sanitize!

No matter if you go with the basic kit, the delux-supreme kit, glass or plastic, its all dependant on clean equipment. Sanatize everying, not just your fermenters and spoons, anything a ingredient will touch, do it. I personally even use the purell hand sanitizer that kills 99% of germs before diving in. Just some advice to you all, and happy brewing.

Cheers

I'm going to say a Sentence that's even better...

"Use the Search function for this message board."

You'll find *everything* because we've all been there and asked that.

On the other hand, a vibrant online community could not exist without new members coming in and asking questions and even the same questions over and over. You always get slightly different answers and occasionally all new perspectives as each individual adds his particular spin to both the questions and the answers.

I like to think of the search function as a secondary tool to augment knowledge, delve deeper into a subject, observe the changing trends in styles, practices, and opinions over time. I'd hate for people to only use the search function, or even to prefer it to asking a question that is directly pertinent to them. That direct participation and social element constitutes much of the value of a forum environment. Anyway, the search on this forum is crude, a blunt force tool lacking boolean subtlety. It's hard to use, and either ignores keywords or returns too many hits.

Without the constantly changing dynamic element introduced by both new and old members asking questions, and even repeat questions, the forum would lose its pulse, its vibrancy, its life, and its appeal. Knowledge would grow stale, camaraderie would evaporate, and we could replace the whole thing with an FAQ.

That wouldn't be any fun at all. Besides, some of us are just naturally loquacious.

And I'd leave it at that, but I just discovered I have to have at least 10 characters in my post. I can safely say I've never encountered that problem before.
