Hello, take your time, I would suggest getting a kit to get your feet wet, read up on fermentation temperature control, Like BrewKid said if you are still lost or confused... ask question.

Welcome and Cheers

Green beer sucks, let it age/condition/finish and become great before drinking it. WileECoyote

Good/Great beer takes time! if you want a quick beer go to the store or bar!

Things come and go. Good beer will live on for ever ! WileECoyote

Make sure you can control your fermentation temps.

take good notes. write down everything you do, note your start times and end times each step of the way and write down all your temps and gravity readings.

be obsessed with sanitation.

read and reread your recipe. understand what you are going to do at each step before you start.

dont freak out if you screw something up. unless something seriously catostrphic happens, like you spill all your wort, or microwave your yeast, you will make beer.

have fun, get a couple beers of the style your making to have along the way just dont get hammered until after you pitch the yeast.

All good pointers, especially the constant note taking I have two notebooks one says brew spec (recipes and procedure) one says brew step (all my notes, tips I may have read here, and studying ive done up to brew day) Be orginized and have a plan for a smooth relaxing and fun brew day

Don't freak out if you think you've done something wrong and you're beer's going to be ruined. Chances are it will be fine.

2nd this.

this obsession is very forgiving... 900 things you think you did wrong and you will still get beer

901 things go wrong, you may not get beer, but you've learned and next time only 400 things go wrong

then you get beer.
