Nothing that you haven't heard before if you've been lurking these forums for a while.

Nice!

1. Make a detailed step by step checklist and use it (actually check things off as you go)
2. Using this checklist, make beer.

Seriously, a checklist is very helpful.

That's probably some pretty good advice. Unfortunately, I've never been a checklist kind of guy. I'm more of a "do it the wrong way several times, and learn from your mistakes," kind of guy.

Do the checklist thing!

I am planning to do the American Micro Pale Ale first for sure. Time to go clean and santize everything and get started.

So beautiful it almost makes me weepy.... Looking at a gear / recipe kit is like looking at your pregnant wife... you know that if you wait long enough something wonderful is gonna happen.
