Never done anything besides drink beer.
Searched a few phrases here, but seems most of you guys are way more advanced.
Where is square 1 for learning to brew beer? (the right way)
I'm an IPA guy for sure.
Thanks for your time and input.
Welcome! When we started, we did so by making a very small investment in a one-gallon kit, which gives you everything you need, including step-by-step instructions. It will also allow you to easily try it on your kitchen stove top. If you Google homebrewing kits, a lot of options will come up, and you can buy online.
Making beer with a small batch kit is really easy (if you can make soup, you can make beer). We got hooked, and I think you will too, and soon we were stepping up to larger batches, and eventually all-grain brewing.
But my advice would be not to invest too much until you see if it's for you. You can get a complete, one-gallon kit for around 50 bucks, and be drinking your own beer within a couple of weeks.
All of the other advice you are getting here is excellent, but (and it's just my opinion from my personal experience), I feel it's best to "get your feet wet" first to see if it's for you.
