G'day and Hallo!

Bilingual greetings from New Zealand (the Maori in the subject doesn't count) and a quick introduction:

Sven here, male, 42. Born and raised in Northern Germany, environmental geologist, working and living in New Zealand for 1.5 years now and brand new to the wonderful world of brewing. Two batches are already bubbling away (I am really scared of trying the first one, a Munich Lager - I followed the instructions on the kit  ;D) and now I want to look a bit deeper into the whole thing. A man needs a hobby - now I've got two. The first one is photography (see website) and now I've started the brewing and I am looking forward to some good beers and talking to you guys about all this.

I raise a glass of Speight's (my brews are still fermenting, sorry)

Cheers
Sven

Welcome - glad to hear you are brewing and this is the place to get advice and questions answered.

No need to fear the beer - brewing beer is pretty forgiving.

Born in the Harz Mountains but moved around a bit for study and work: Kiel and Hamburg are the more known places :)

Well done, mate! How come you know some German?

I can recommend it for an extended holiday. You should swing by one day and try.

Thanks for the welcome!
And I really hope you are right - since I read a bit about home brewing I don't trust beer kits any more :)
