I am dumbfounded by the amount of information here. I have started a in depth read on the how to brew link to Mr. Palmers book. My question is this: is anyone in reasonble proximity to Clarksburg, WV who might take a noob brewer under his wing and help out with my first batch. All I can offer is this: I will be a vigilant student, and we will drink ALOT of whatever you choose commercial after we are done as a way to celebrate.
Thanks in advance.
PS: If you are a scotch drinker also I have had my eye on a bottle of 18 year glen fiddich this would be an excuse to buy it!!!
