+1 on that! Starting with extracts gives you a great chance to really nail down the SUPER important parts of homebrewing. Sanitation is #1, also good to practice transfering from one vessel to another without contamination or oxidation. I personally feel that these two things are the most important things to learn before you start introducing all the variables in All Grain that new brewers tend to worry about. Once you're comfortable with extracts, AG will come easy.
