If you just want to try brewing this would be a great starter or if you are a seasoned brewer and just want to step back and see what this is all about, I would highly recommend it. Plus you can always modify it a bit to fit your tastes.
If you can boil water, you can make this brew! It really is that easy and it tastes great too!
