Default beginner beer brewer (need advice)

What's the best brew to make for my first batch of beer. I'm nervous on making it.
I have glass carboy for fermentation.

Something easy? I'd go with an English bitter or an amber.
IMO brewing beer isn't as hard as some make it out to be. I've brewed everything ... I've had one bad batch because I rushed it. Don't be intimidated . Relax

Edworts haus ale is an easy great tasting brew.

Also consider a darker beer for example a porter or stout. They are a bit more forgiving to off flavors.

My first batch was a red ale which turned out great! If you are brewing from a kit then you shouldn't have many problems. The key to brewing is easy, just stick to the basics. Follow the directions and be sure to sanitize everything (basically anything that will come into contact with the beer). As for your beer of choice, like others have said, brew something you like to drink. Most of the time you'll end up with a product you'll enjoy drinking. And it only gets better the more you brew. Enjoy!

I assume you are looking to do an extract brew? Find a clone to a beer that you like...and stay away from lagers!!

A lot of sites to choose from. Midwest has some good extract kits.

Extract is the way to start....adding a few steeping grains to the recipe is nice too.
