Beginning Homebrew Advice

Cheshire_Cat | May 11, 201009:22 AM     16

Hi Everyone,

So yesterday I made my first batch of homebrew, an American Brown Ale. Everything seemed to go ok so I am keeping my fingers crossed.

I thought I would reach out and ask what advice can you give to a beginning homebrewer? I read about 1/2 of How to Brew by Palmer (which is great btw) but like any hobby each person has their own style or way of doing things. So what is some wisdom you could share that may not be in a book? One of the areas I know was important is sanitation, I struggled with this area. Not so much in getting stuff sanitized but making sure that stuff stays sanitized.

Thanks!
