Hello all! First time poster here on homebrewtalk.com! I've been making wine for some time now and am making the leap to beer this summer. I've been looking for a summer type ale recipe for a while now and I think this is it!
I was looking for a brew that liked camping, boating, fishing, hiking, long walks on the beach.... hehehe.. you get the idea. My family's active outdoors most of the summer so I wanted a brew that would fit and be enjoyed by all!
I called the LBS yesterday and put in an order for all the ingredients! I'm upping the size a little... going with a 20gal batch! (fits my wine equip a little better than 5gal)
Hope to get it in the primary this weekend!
I've done quite a bit of research online regarding brewing and had a good long conversation with the LBS yesterday on the fundamentals but.... I was wondering if you would mind taking the time to lay out the steps for me just as you have done them....? Feel free to dumb them down a little for this newb
Step 1: Do the first thing
Step 2: Do the second thing.... etc.
I just think this would help put EVERYTHING into perspective for me. I understand your ingredient list and what everything does, I'm still just a little foggy on the process.
Thanks for any help/assistance/guidance you may be able to provide!
