I just noticed this thread, so I thought I'd introduce myself:
I've been brewing since 2005, having started with a Mr Beer. I use lots of different methods, now--partial mash, extract with grain, all grain--depending on the type of brew, but always have fun. I'm not much into technology (which is good cuz I'm poor) but very interested in methodology. I like brewing great beer with very basic equipment.
My favorite styles are pale ale, IPA, hoppy red ales, hefeweizen, and bitters.
During the day I'm a speech-language pathologist.
I might have a little good advice hidden around her somewhere, but I certainly have a ton to learn...always a beginner!
