Hello Brewing community ! Just thought it would be polite to pop in and introduce myself, hi i'm Chris and very new to the brewing, after 7 years of living in a village with no pub and a pub night only once a month (can you hear those violins ?) i decided to get off my rear and do something about it !

I cannot pretend to know anything but want to know everything so i may ask a lot of questions.

Welcome in Chris [smile] 

Are you starting with the kits or taking the plunge into grain brewing? Plenty of help and advice here for either [smile] 
Beer is like porn - you can buy it easily enough, but its so much more fun to make it [wink]

Hi Pinto I picked up a brew kit from a guy who was moving back to the states and it came with two kits, an india pale ale and a hard fruit cider so these will be going on first and then we will see where we are after that, already found posts relating to improving on a kit so that may be my next step. I want to get on to using grain etc as im surrounded by it growing and would like to incorporate something local into my ale.
