I got a Groupon for Christmas to make beer at You Brew It (Nor Cal). I had a great time, and loved the end result. I didn't really learn anything. The dude didn't slow down and explain shit, he just pointed and told me to pour shit, with no explanation.
I'm going back next weekend to do it again. After this, I think I want to get into actually brewing at home.
What learning resources would you recommend for an abolute beginner?
