Check out it should walk you through everything you need to know. You can buy first time home brewing kits with all the basic equipment you need, and sometimes they through in the ingredients for your first batch!

I would say the Skeeter Pee you see so many threads about here would be a great plac to start. Skeetef is very good, super simple, and very cheap. As in it only cost me $25 for five gallons and I was using the expensive 'real and pure organic lemon juice'. I'm not much for grape wines myself, I'm a Mead maker, but i'm over on this forum quite often to learn any tips and tricks that will help with my Mead, and this is where i first learned about skeeter. Within a week I had 10 gallons in the works! I highly recommend it.

I remember, years ago getting a six'r of Mike's Hard Lemonade. I drank one that night and I liked it. The next day I brought the other five bottles to the pool. You know, it's kind of hard to drink more than two of those in a sitting..............
............. Now beer on the other hand, I can drink all day. I recommend beer.

Any advise offered after 10:00p.m. should be regarded as questionable
I can't brew until something is empty

An easy no-fail method I swear by...

10 containers frozen juice concentrate (any flavors you like)
10 # sugar
1tbl Nutrient
1tbl Energizer
1pkt Yeast (I usualy use montrechet)
Water up to 5 gallons

And let it go.

I make other batches with all fruit or mixed fruit and concentrate... but for just general party hooch this method is cheap and effective.
