We won't be participating in this forum anymore. Best of luck to you. Advise you check out www.howtobrew.com
for lots of good free information on homebrewing.
That really is a great website that, in my case, gets read many times. Each time I read it, make another batch, read some posts here, go back and visit the site again...it makes more sense every time. Another great site to check out is http://hbd.org/recipator/
....it not only has a recipe database, but the actual recipator is perfect for crafting your own recipes. I started out with kits, and it was perfect for a newbie, because they're almost foolproof. My 3rd batch was my first non-kit brew, and it came out pretty good. I'm going back to kits for a couple batches just to get a taste for what the different styles, grains, and malts will give you...then on to the "fancy" stuff like adding different flavors and such...
Desert...I'm interesting in knowing how that Nut Briwn Ale comes out, because I almost picked that kit up.....went with a California Common instead....unfortunately, that one won't get brewed for a while, I think...broke my elbow a week ago, so lifting brewpots is not in my future.....DOH!!!
