Ok, there's a thread going on in the beginner's winemaking subforum... "Drinkable wines while waiting for others to finish aging". But, I like beer, too, but have never brewed any. I'm thinking of brewing beer to help "span the ages". I'm a wimp and normally drink Coors Lite. And, I figure the best route is to go with a kit...but which one? What would be the most simple process to use? Anybody got a link to a cookie-cutter, generic, beginner's beer-making tutorial for the criminally mundane? When I start reading about malting, and mashing, and 5-row, and other aspects of homebrewing my eyes start crossing... So, any *really* basic pointers on where to start at? Thanks!
