Don't be intimidated . . . It's no harder than making a good pot of chili or anything else. Do you want it out of a can or tweak it a little to your taste. Practices makes perfect or better as the case may be. In less than 10 batches you'll be digging up an old cooler and making better BEER.
A good piece of advise I read on here was to make your first 5 batches following the directions. Perfect other peoples receipes and your "technique" before getting ahead of yourself . . . Look at the people of YouTube . . .
