    What to brew for my first batch

    Hi all, I'm a noob when it comes to Home Brew but have been reading quite a lot and am excited to brew my first batch. I am planning on a full boil on a 5gal batch, but am at a loss as to what to brew for my first batch. That being the case I thought I'd ask the experts. ;) I'm going to...
