Thanks for the input guys. I have a confession to make in that until about 2 months ago all I drank was commercial beer, and didn't much like craft beer. Wow how my taste buds have changed, it's almost miraculous. I still drink commercial beer, but a six pack at a time I have been exploring new tastes.
Unfortunately, my wife hates the smell of me brewing so I have to find a burner for outside. Another bummer is that I decided to join this amazing hobby and group of people after buying my first house, so I'm very low budget.
Still doing all I can to learn, and the wife has requested a Pumpkin beer (her favorite) for the next batch (if anyone knows of any good/easy recipes). Thanks again for all your help.
