    Greetings from Greece,

    I am 33yo and I am waiting to taste my very first batch, a mere Mangrove Jack's beer kit (all included in a pouch), no not much of a brew but I hope for a good result! I am currently considering the next batch and I have been reading around, trying to figure out the differences between extract, partial mash and BIAB (I believe I got the main idea).

    Good to join you all, I hope we have fun.

    Cheers,
    Konstantinos

    Welcome!
    Good luck with the first brew.
    The most important ingredient in making beer is patience!

    Welcome to the forum Konstantinos. A kit is a great place to start. It removes many of the variables and allows you to learn your process first. Then as your comfort zone increases, then you get branch out and try new things and buy or build new things. Or not. It's up to you. As long as your beer tastes good and you enjoy brewing it, you are doing it right!

    Welcome Konstantinos, I think you'll find most of us more than happy to help in any way we can.
    Your first brew is very likely to be great, that's one advantage of those kits.

    Don't worry about it. You were close enough. Especially when you see how far off-topic some of our conversations get! :)
