As a total newb I has a question for those more expirenced than myself. I would like to brew a Hefeweizen as I have just been introduced to the style and find it quite to my liking. Alas I will have to settle for an extract at this time, would love to go AG, but finances dont allow the purchasing of the needed equipment
I could do a partial mash / partial boil if needed for any specalty grains but dont have a pot large enough for a full 5 gal boil, or a burner to pull it of for that matter. My question is would I be better served by ordering a kit from one of the online stores, or finding a recipe and heading into the LHBS with a shopping list. I will admit I like spending my money with the local business, but am not against using a tryed and true kit that is more idiot resistant. What do do??
