I disagree. Being a "noob" you should stick your nose in this book until you understand it. I wish I had 3 years ago.

If there is anything that you dont quite understand, there are tons of people here willing to explain it in an easy to get fashion.

FWIW, I got a lot out of the chapter about paying attention to Gravity Units. Its soo nice to not have to worry about hitting my numbers anymore. If you can do 3rd grade math, you can do this!

Looked at a photo of a friends beer! Then drank one of my own.



Reason: fat fingers

Read around 40 pages of brewing history for my aptly names college course: History of Beer and Brewing.

(and didn't drink a single beer because this weekend is going to be a boozy one...)

Got in a shipment that included grains, hops, and yeast today. Hopefully I will brew my first porter this weekend. I need to bottle my Cream of 3 Crops that has been in the fermenter for 3 weeks to free up the fermenter first. Looks like it may be a busy Saturday!

So just got done checking my cold steep coffee mix for my coffee Stout I am doing. Them added yeast to my friends Berry wine he lives in an apartment and I have to Ed of space so he brews at my place. Wrote out the calander for the rest of the month and half of Feb. checked my kegs to see how hard we will have to work to get ready for the new beer that needs a spot. This is going to be a good weekend but stay focused it is a job if we don't empty a keg we can't try a different beer.
