Just popping in to say the instructions are a good start. But they kind of miss the mark in places. The boil and hop addition portions are great. After that, though, I'd suggest the following adjustments:
1) cooling: Cool, add water, etc, but make sure your temp is at prime temp before pitching yeast. For ales, shoot for mid to low sixties. 70-80 will lead to off flavors.
2) If you can maintain the same temp, at least for the first few days, that's ideal. Cool basement closet? Bucket with ice packs? Whatever keeps you in the low to mid sixties is great.
3) skip secondary. The instructions probably say go for a week, transfer to secondary for two weeks, then bottle. Leave it be for three weeks without a secondary and bottle. Decide on later batches whether or not to transfer.
