So I guess the real question is what is a good book for a beginning brewer. I could also use some advice on extract kits that are one the lighter side. I'm not a big fan of heavy or dark beer. Oh did I forget to tell you this is not my first try at brewing. My brother and I tried about 25 years ogo and it was the worst tasting ____ you could think of. Thanks for your time and any advice is welcome
home brewing has come a long way in the last 25 years. even the last 10 years. getting a solid book, like How to Brew, and taking advice from the pros/semi-pros/enthusiast brewers will really make a difference in the outcome of your beer. check out Northern Brewer on the kits. you can search according to your personal tastes.
There is a difference between pride and arrogance. Which do you hold in your heart?
