Search out homebrew clubs in your area. Goto a meeting, ask lots of questions. My club has a program where we pair beginners and more experienced guys for brew sessions. Ask lots of questions here. The people on this forum are very well informed, and experienced. Search out videos on the interwebs, there is a wealth of info there, too.
+1 on Palmer's "How To Brew". I first started with Charlie Papazian's "Joy of Homebrewing, 3rd edition" That book is a bit dated, but took the mystery out of it, and gave me a great start.
Again, don't hesitate to ask questions here. This is a great forum.
Welcome to the forum, and welcome to the obsession!
