Wow, I sure let this thread die. For those of you who care, my first batch was a monumental fail. I over primed my bottles, so...when I opened them, the beer erupted out of the bottle like a foam geyser! So, I gave up, but now I'm back! I have a 5gal batch of a beginner LME on day 4 of fermentation. Hopefully this run will have a desirable outcome!
