This is only the beginning

I'm new to home brewing. In fact, I have never even done it yet. I have fermented 2 batches of wine this year and feel beer would be more fulfilling. I love wine, but the batches I have made won't be in their prime until a year or so from now. I have patients, but while I wait I feel it is time to try something new.

I've been reading a lot on the subject and I think I have a firm understanding of the process. As with everything, the best way to learn is to do. Right now i am deciding what type of beer I would like to brew. I personally like IPA's, Stouts, and some other strong varieties, so I think an IPA will be the first on my list. Does anyone else have a suggestion?

When I pick up the kit, I will post the details. May not be for a week or so.

Until then.

my first batch was pretty close to an ipa. i feel its a pretty good way to start. now i'm working on a hefeweizen, which i hope to be delicious.

the process is almost trivial. i'd like to see where this blog goes when you start making recipes.
