Thank you for all the help. I will take it slow and do another extract batch first. The joy of home brewing has opened my eyes a bit regarding all the extract recipes out there. I think my real desire is to be able to experiment a bit more than just taking the kit and following the steps. In reading I see there are many relatively safe ways to customize the brew a bit.
I have plenty of coolers in the basement and already have a burner, so I will find some videos of what the process looks like in action to help me figure out what I really need to buy other than a larger kettle. I am often guilty of jumping in with both feet and accumulating more shiney new toys then I need.
Thank you again
