i brewed one extract kit to pop my cherry (it was a chocolate cherry porter ironically enough) and then went to a stovetop all grain witbier. the process was followed using deathbrewer(i believe its his) link from his signature. from there i bought a cooler and a bigger kettle and went balls to the wall... made a couple "ok" beers before honing down my process and actually making something really enjoyable.
it took me getting away from the crazy high octane beers to get my process correct. i no longer have a need to make every beer i have 9%+ i'm happy with anything from the 4-6% range. i actually just made a 3.7% elderberry beer that is pretty damn good
EDIT: i guess i just went off the title haha. check out the thread here: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f39/easy...ng-pics-90132/
this will give you some extra info and assistance during your first AG brew day. It was my bible on the first AG i did

if you order them milled from NB you will be good to go. no need for anything extra crushing
