New to Homebrewing...help!

Im pretty sure you guys get a lot of posts like this…
but im in need of some help ,i finished two batches of Mr. Beer kits and im ready to take on something a little more complex. I am cuently in the process of gathering supplies to brew, so far i have a Kettle with a spiggot, more than enough dark amber bottles (thank you sam adams) and i also have fermenting buckets and utensils. I know i still need a lot more but was wondering if someone can help me out with a fairly easy to moderate recipe. Im looking for a IPA recipe anything that is a bit more advanced than a Mr. Beer kit…and if you could sort of give me a run down on instructions that would be great. CHEERS!!!

Thanks in advance!!!

Northern brewer has a lot of recipe kits with PDF instructions. I would browse around their IPA extract kits until you find something that suites your tastes and equipment.

I agree with the above. As a fairly new homebrewer, I suggest honing your process and let someone else worry about the recipes. One of the very nice and unique things about NB kits is that they list the exact ingredients on the package insert (also available in the aforementioned PDF). So you can brew it as it was meant to be, and then if you decide you want to tweak the recipe, you know what the baseline recipe was.

When I first started I was using Northern Brewer kits and as long as you can read and follow directions they have pretty much everything you need written out. Plenty of IPA options but I’d pick something lower in gravity.

Brewing less than a year here. Taking it slow and doing kits is a good way to learn. Plus searching/reading this forum and the items below are great.

How to Brew - great beginners info and TONS of info that you won’t need at first but will as your skills progress.

Thank you all! I had no idea NB had so much info. Weird question but does anyone live in San Bernardino that would be willing to let me watch them brew and take notes??? I would be more than happy to learn as much as possible from an experienced brewer i would be willing to supply some nice cold brew for the chance to watch a pro.

Thank again

Also…when I started out, I found the Brewing TV videos on this site to be very helpful and entertaining. They do several episodes on extract batches.
