Welcome! Make anything yet? Read any good books? I believe that "how to brew" by mr. Palmer should be required reading, not to mention it being free.

Careful though - the free edition is the first edition - the one in print at your local bookstore is the third edition, and there are definitely some differences and some more up-to-date info there. Worth the $20 or so.

I didn't realize that there were newer editions but it is pretty obvious there is some age on the info when you read it. Still all solid principals though. The black and white pictures are a dead give away, Ha!

I started with a kit from coopers, and I've made two batches so far....the already bought lager from Coopers and their dark ale. The first one came out ok, albeit weird tasting...while the dark alke I made on two different bottle when I bottled them...one came out better than the other. The ale i let ferment for about two months because it's darker amds I've read that the longer the fermentation, the better thet results.....i think I'd like to make a porter now so I'm looking at american suppliers to get my recipes
