    Hi there. Been bought a little equipment from my wife for birthday so currently scouring the Internet for good forums and sites and came across this so joined. Caught the bug and bought first two kits I will be doing (Yorkshire Terrier bitter and New Zealand Pale ale). Any advice/recipes will be greatly appreciated as I plan to go straight to AG after these.
    Thanks.

    Welcome!

    I'd say sanitation is a good thing to pay attention to from the very start of brewing. No sense getting a recipe and brew day perfect if you're just dumping it into a dirty bucket.

    But above all, relax, don't worry, have a homebrew (or a commercial beer while you wait). This stuff wants to be beer and you pretty much have to actively try to screw it up to prevent that from happening. That doesn't mean to pitch the yeast at 120f, but it'll be fine if it's a few degrees out of its optimal range.

    Good luck with your first brews
