Hello to all of you Homebrewers,

I have recently become interested in making my own beer and figured
that this would be a good place to start. I have read a few issues
of HBD abd I can tell that there are quite a number of knowledgable
brewers out there. What I am looking for right now is a way to get
started. Many of you are mentioning terms that I am not familiar
with even though I have been a beer _drinker_ since I was 12. (That's
105 in dog years) Anyway I think the best place for me to start would
be with a couple of good books, so if anyone could suggest some reading
material for the novice brewer, it would be greatly appreciated.

Recently I was in England and spent as much time as possible going into
the local pubs of each town I was in. I tended to like the bitter much
more than ales and lagers, so if you could steer me in that direction
that would be great. Also, if anyone knows of any commercial beers that
would be similar to the great bitters of England, I would be very inter-
ested in finding and drinking those. I found a "pub" in NYC called
"The Slaughtered Lamb" and they serve an ale there called "Full Moon"
that was quite what I was looking for, but it is only available on tap
in their bar.

Unless you think that there are other novices out there like me you can
send any information to my e-mail address.
