Hmmm, I still may consider the class as I do enjoy overkill. Even though I have billions of things to learn from the books and here and even the wiki.

Its more like a step towards a formal education and professional brewing IMO.

The homebrewer doesn't need anything more than a copy of How To Brew by Palmer for $20.
Except scratch that 20 bucks homes....

It's Holmes, Holmes, not homes

And that's the first edition, there have been changes, I believe edition 3 is the current one

Learning is a great thing, and I would never discourage taking a course. But...if you're into overkill I can think of some pretty sweet brewing equipment you could buy for 2k. Just a thought.

I'm only a few months into the brewing obsession myself, but I have learned a ton just by reading some of the books out there, brewing, and spending some time looking through the HBT archives. There is a lot to be gained just by reading, talking to those with more experience, brewing, and reading some more. And there's always youtube too, there are some awesome brewing videos that help put it all together. Like I said, I wouldn't want to discourage you from taking the class, but you might get more out of it if you exhaust some of the more basic resources first.

Very good point, I should put my efforts more into learning the basics from here and books, and putting more brews down. Thanks again all.

Look up the following:

www.Beerrecipes.org
www.Northernbrewer.com
www.tastybrew.com
www.homebrewzone.com
www.hopville.com

these will all have recipes and styles for you to use.

you should be boiling your DME and adding Hops.

there is a $7 beer (costs $7 to make) that i am working on right now. it is an american pale ale style

if you are truly serious about this endevour. invest in an Ale Pail and airlock.

I've been spending endless hours reading helpful hints on this site and those all have helpfully linked in this thread and throughout the site. Learning learning until I can next get to the equipment (at friends place, not mine) and put some more batches down. hoping to get some caruoys from my folks who have them filled with matchbooks, clean them out and set up a system with airlocks and all that, while continuing to learn how to do the open fermentation in the crock and fix that recipe up. YAY BEER!
