Ah, beer. If you really want to start brewing beer or mead, I suggest a copy of New Complete Joy of Homebrewing by Charlie Papazian. It's a good guide on everything you need to know, and you don't need to read the whole thing to get rolling.
Not ready to buy a book? Making beer is EEEEEEEEEEazy. Here's the basic process:
put grains into a cloth bag and boil em
Add hops if needed - sort of a dried flower
re-boil the water - now called wort
Add malt extract
re-boil it for an hour or so
add finishing hops.
cool the wort
Once it's cool enough, add yeast and let it get to work.
After a week or so, the yeast will have converted various sugars into alcohol.
Add priming sugar and bottle the beer or
add priming sugar and keg or
keg it and force carbonate it
The priming sugar gives the yeast a final snack to generate the carbonation.
That's it, you just made beer. The malt extract is a cheat, but you can make your own from grains, it's just another process.
Once you've familiarized yourself with the basics, locate a convenient home brew shop. My local store is 'Cool Stuff', not always the best on price, but it's fun to puruse the aparatus and the various beer kits.
At a minimum, you're going to need a big pot to boil your wort (beer bits), a big spoon and a bucket. I prefer to ferment my beer in a glass carboy - I hate plastic flavored water, and beer's got water in it.
I started brewing in 2005. It's one of those rewarding hobbies that you can share.
I started by brewing mead, made from local honey.
Recently I've brewed a couple batches of beer.
