    I've yet to brew my first batch, but I think I'm about a month away. Just trying to learn as much as possible before the big day.

    Welcome Stout! You're in the right place. What are you brewing first? And anything in particular you are wondering about?

    Welcome. Sounds like you're taking the right approach. Learning as much as possible before your first brew is a lot better than starting off learning from mistakes. Best of luck when you brew your first.

    Be warned though ... it's highly addictive, in many respects :)

    Keep it simple (recipe, water treatment, brew day process, yeast, etc.). Think ahead about how you will ferment (container, temperature, etc.). Then kegging or bottling. Keep notes. Piece of cake, then you will be hooked. Welcome and Cheers.

    Thanks all, I think an Amber to start, seems like a lot of the starter kits come with that. I want to get my methods down before I try anything too tricky.

    Welcome to BF, just got started this past February myself, I started by ordering a kit online, then moved quickly to BIAB.
    Best advice at this point is to order a starter kit, watch a bunch of videos online and just do it. We learn best by doing!

    WElcome, my only suggestion would be don't scare yourself to much in advance. It's surprisingly hard to screw beer up.
