1st Homebrew

Greetings Gents:
As you know, this last year I have traveled the road far, from Natural Ice-ville to wonderful stouts, ales, whites, bitters, and porters. I am now ready to move on into the unknown and exciting world of homebrewing. Can any of you recommend a good website that contains literature on novice homebrewing, or maybe a book. Thanks in advance.

You might want to venture on over to rec.crafts.brewing. Newsgroup dedicated to brewing, with the vast majority of it focused on homebrewing.
Back when I was brewing, I poked around www.brewery.org and www.hbd.org 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.
