I really hope I don't produce some carbonated skunk juice. Ill be taking this back with me to college and brewing in my garage. My friends really ripped me a new one for wanting to do this. **** em'. They won't get any. Guess what I'm drinking now for new years; You'll be ashamed. Remember I'm in college still.

Nope, you're fine. Looks like an extract recipe to me!

Do:
Read the kit instructions first
Make sure you have a large enough pot even for partial boils
Sanitize everything
control fermentation temp, use your clothes hamper

Don't:
keep opening it too see what it's doing
Listen to your friends (unless they are brewers)
Rush
bother with a secondary

People still stereotype homebrew, you'll hear a lot of "yeah I tried that once...". You can and will produce a fine product if you follow the instructions and read a bit here in the extract forum.

Don't pitch yeast until 70 and watch fermentation Temps. I was impatient and it cost me, banana flavors in beer are not good
