    First Beer Brew Suggestions.

    Maybe a nice blond ale, Kölsch, altbier, American amber, or a honey wheat. Some thing in the style of a summer lawnmower beer.

    First Brew...did I make a poor choice?

    It sounds like in a seperate pot is where the steeping of the grains will occur. Then it will rest in that pot for thirty minutes.
