I am new to the homebrewing scene. A friend of mine has done it in the past and i loved his beers (lost touch with him so i can't ask him any of these questions).

I just recently replaced my 27 year old beverage air with a new kegerator and want to start brewing as a hoby. However, I live in central PA and the closest homebrew store is like 3 hours away.

I would like some adivice on the best websites to purchase a full brewing kit (good quality, doesn't have to be the cheapest but that is prefered) that would include everything I need for brewing (and if not what additional stuff to buy).

I would like to keg my beer, so a site that sells good quality kegs would also be appriciated. I have existing lines in my kegerator with a metal male connector for the gas and beer lines so I need to know what connectors to buy.

How many kegs should I start with, 1 or 2?

Also, i am a huge fan of Hoegaarden so I would like some recommendations on a good recepie to try or a good site to buy quality ingredients.

Thanks in advance
Scott

A search would really work well here.
We have a sticky for online stores, and even a couple of threads on Hoegaarden , including a clone recipe!
Also check the beginner forum for lots more info.
