The best way to get started is to just dive right in, pick up a clone kit and just do it. You can read, watch videos and ask questions, but at the end of the day getting your hands in the grain is the only way to learn properly. Yes, you could make mistakes like we all have. But you learn more from messing up and correcting your process than doing it perfectly. Dogfish had to dump 500,000 dollars worth of 120 before, so it happens to the best.

If you're from New Orleans, then you should check out http://abita.com/brews. Their Purple Haze is a good raspberry lager.

The best advice I can give you, or anyone thinkin of starting to brew, is just to do it.

Kits are pretty cheap and if you hate it, it's no more expensive than dinner and a movie. But if you love it like so many of us, it'll be a lifelong hobby/obsession with many years of enjoyment.

I woukdnt compare a cream ale to a hefeweizen. Hefeweizen definitely has a distinct flavor. I love wheat beers and hate some hefeweizen. I'm just not a big fan of the flavors the yeast provide. But where I live there's a lot of popular American style wheat veers that use an American ale yeast and **** they're good. Just picked up a honey malt wheat from the east coast and damn it's a fine beer.
