Jay, I have found that you should think about the recipe style you want to brew, go in and read some recipes from that style. Get a good idea of what you should build upon and ask questions. Also a book by Tess and Mark Szamatulski "Clone Brews" has recipes that make it easy for the first timer to duplicate his/her favorite brew from all grain. The way they set up the book is that all recipes are in extract & all grain. Good luck and welcome to the next step.

Excellent Reference

"Designing Great Beers" by Ray Daniels is also an excellent reference. I can't say enough about it. Additionally, there are the Classic Beer Style Series of which I have 3 titles, Stout, Brown Ale, and Pale Ale. These are also great references with sample recipes, history, etc.

Porter by the same fellow who did Pale Ale is my favorite in the series. He's good. I gotta check designing great beers. Thank!
