I just started on this forum, so I don't know if this has been previously

I have only made a couple of batches of beer so far. Yesterday I got
supplies to make two different types. While I was gettin the supplies,
the owner asked me if I was using single or two stage fermenters. I'm
afraid I dont know the difference between single and two stage fermenting.
Is there an advantage to the two stage method? Is this something I should
look into? What is the time difference? What is the difference in the beer?

My last brew was a Pale from a kit my supplier makes. It has a nice body,
and little aftertaste. It is quite good, in fact, much better than what
is typically found in a store. The beer I'm going to make this weekend
is an Amber that comes from an older book. The guy I got my equipment from
said it is very good, and was what he made the most of.

Well, thanx in advance for any info on the fermenting subject, and have
a nice day!
