Pretty excited... I've done 5 batches of Mr Beer..
read all over this forum, listened to countless Basic Brewing podcasts..
and sampled a huge majority of the Craft Breweries down here in San Diego.
I will say, as said in the massive MR Beer thread, It was a great intro.. and I still plan to use it just to change it up.
anyway, I went into my LHBS and we went about piecing my kit together.. After that was done, she gave me a recipe book and we talked about different beers and brewing. I decided to try an Extract/Specialty Grain Imperial Stout for my first brew. Can't wait to get deeper into the community, and enjoy some quality brews.
