But read, read read is a big part of this.....Suggestions ??? Where does a beginner start ? With the exception of the obvious of read read and read more?
if you like taste of clean, crisp lagers (like me) I would suggest to do a Kolsch. Search for recipies and about it on HBT. Its an ale which tastes like lager, really easy to do with proper yeast and simple ingredients. You will need to ferment it in low 60's for best results. I would really steer clear of lagers or pilsners for first few batches. I did a Pilsner for my first batch and it went down the drain, I cried.Like I said Ive never done beer before and it looks like I picked on of the hardest beers to start with....Maybe I need to back up and try something simpler to start with.
