    Hello! I am a recently retired heavy industrial electrician who had to have a knee replaced so that ended my career.Now I have time to brew my own beer but I only drink about two a day so I only brew 5 gallons at a time. I really do not understand a lot of the terms that I have reading about on the forum column.Is there a section I could go to to read up on some of these terms? Thank You for helping me if somebody can!

    You could always ask in the thread itself if you're not sure of something. I've done it several times and everyone's been helpful about. Plus it's good to see new faces there

    Also, have you thought about doing 1 or 2 gallon batches? You could have more variety on hand that way and brew a bit more frequently

    There's an online book by John Palmer. www.How To Brew.com
    This will help explain most of the terms and basic types of brewing. Good luck in your brewing! This is a great place to share your experiences.
