I disagree. My first beer was an all grain blonde ale. I didn't just dive in. I read and read and read and made sure I understood the theory of what I was doing. I bought some brewing software and formulated my own version based on similar recipes. But I didn't copy anyone's exactly. I made it my own. It came out great.

Experimenting early can lead to failure.... OR.... it can lead to success and build confidence... OR... the journey of even thinking about experimenting can take you down a different path and lead you to try something totally different.

Experiment away my friends. What do you have to lose? You'll only gain from the experience.

Nothing wrong with experimenting in my book. It's a side affect of the affliction and a learning path too. Just dont get discouraged if things dont turn out right. Take it in, dial it in, RDWHAHB....!

New brewer adding pipe tobacco or beef jerky to there secondary. Not to mention fruit flys and infection. Wonder why there beer didn't turn out. It's easy for us who have made great first brews. We stuck to what the style called for. Why not try to get the beer right first then tweak it is what I'm saying. Adding 10 pounds of god knows what on your first batch to then come on here to ask what happened ? I see great people "mods included" who go out of there way to help.

Default From the new guy

I am against complaining when I screw up and begging for answers when I deviate from tried and true methods......BUT..... I say if you know the risk and you do your homework, then this is no different then cooking. Try new things and keep good notes. I can go buy a XXX style beer from any store at any time. Why do I need to make it at home? If you are worried about cost and loss, it seems like this was the wrong hobby choice. Personally I like reading about trial and error as well as success. Anybody else read the Mt. Dew thread lately? I joined this forum to learn and hopefully add to others knowledge some day. I don't think we should be telling people what they should and should not do as that sets a tone I rather not be a part of. Just my two cents as the new guy.

My first batch was a cream ale. I bottled half by recipe (mostly) and added bourbon vanilla extract to the other half. Most people liked the regular best but the vanilla version wasn't awful.

Second batch was an American Wheat. Bottled half and racked the other half on 3 pounds of blueberries. Most people preferred the original, but there were quite a few chicks who still ask me when I am making the blueberry again.

Lately, my changes have been a little more subtle. Sometimes I'll add some Honey Malt. I nearly always mess with the hop schedule. I think we learn more from our failures than we learn from our successes.
