    So I piggy backed on another Utah brewers post, but thought I should introduce myself properly.

    Name is Brad. I am new to brewing, started with a Mr Beer for Fathers day, quickly added a second Mr Beer. Then just recently got a killer deal on a brewers best complete setup ($25!) to start doing 5 gallon batches.

    I did a couple Mr Beer HME, but the last couple I have done lme/dme with steeping grains. The Mr Beer route was not challenging or creative enough, but it did give me a good start into the process (#1 is just done with 4 weeks carb/cond) I am just getting ready to do batch #6 which is the first 5 gallon batch for me. I have been keeping records of what I have done and mistakes I have made in process, so I can improve. I stumbled on this website and quickly joined since I loved the recipe feature and have been playing with it alot.

    The brew log steps are very handy, I have used then, but there were simple little things I kept overlooking or not thinking about that might not pertain to the masses, but did me. I have attached my extract brewing steps and would appreciate any feedback anyone has on what I have wrong or missed. Keep in mind it is extract, not AG.

    Thanks everyone and cheers!

    Welcome to the fold!

    Brew steps look good to me. Nice tips on addressing re-hydration of dry yeast.
