Sir, you are all over the lot!
If this was the "Equipment" forum I'd say, "We need pictures of your kegerator work!" But alas, it is not.
Seeing how this is the "Extract Brewing" forum I'd have to recommed you perfect your extract brewing techniques, possibly moving past kits and formulating your own recipes before moving to AG. It will put you more in touch with the process before adding more variables.
And in closing I simply say:
"Boot To The Head."
