This Saturday, my wife and I will be going to a brew shop and learn about all grain brewing, this will be our first exposure to home brewing and we will pick up a kit to start out with. We have made wine but this will be our first ever beer!
Welcome to the forum. I suggest you also pick up John Palmers book "How To Brew". When choosing a first beer, a good choice is an ale, such as a porter. A lager is not a good first choice, because of how important fermentation temperature control is in making a good lager.
