Do you know a site or a web page that lists and explains all technical English terms specific to homebrewing?

I am Italian and I would like learning more in this field, but sometimes I do not understand all terms used here.

PS. Maybe could be an idea have a CW to fullfill this purpose?

Don't worry, most native English speakers need to consult some literature to learn some of the specific terms; such as mash, sparge, lauder, etc. – Mike Miller Nov 19 '10 at 2:43

Take a look at this glossary by BeerAdvocate.
