welcome. check out the recipe database for good recipes. i would recommend a blond ale, cream ale, kolsch, or schlerenka (a user here) recently posted a clone of miller light. i assume you are not set up for lagering??

as for process, there is a ton to read on the internet, in books, and on this site about brewing. check out howtobrew.com for detailed info.

good luck!

First off welcome to the forums.

Take a look at this recipe http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f66/cent...10-gall-42841/. it is my 2nd one and still fermenting. If you scroll to the bottom of page 1 you will find an extract version. It is relatively cheap if you have a local supplier.

I second the idea for a blonde or cream ale. I have a a cream ale from a kit through midwest that is a real BMC crowd pleaser. Even some of the most skeptical have said it was very good, light, and refreshing. I'm tempted to make another batch with a few tweaks to keep on hand for my light beer drinking friends.

Liberty Cream Ale
