a bit. As for books, the classic introductory homebrew text is "The New Complete Joy of Homebrewing" by Charlie Papazian. Be forewarned that his writing style is not for everyone (personally, I find it the equivalent of fingernails on a chalkboard), and a lot of his info isn't really correct but will work for beginning homebrewing. A better text is "Homebrewing Vol. 1" by Al Korzonas. But, ask the r.c.b. gang what's best. I've been out of the brewing game for better than four years now, and I don't know what's new that might be even better.

What everyone else said plus: Homebrewing for Dummies. Yep. I know, some people HATE these books but the author is a guy named Marty Nachel his writing style is very readable and it is an excellent resource plus thorough step by step instructions for beginning and intermediate brewing. I still use it to look up hop varieties sometimes, also it's got about 100 recipes.
