comment Performing a hop boil seperate from the wort boil.
he's saying do a short boil with them. I would expect your boils to be less than 15 minutes for getting the hop flavour or less than 5 minutes for getting the hop aroma.

(as an aside) I've never lamented too greatly the loss of the bottom portion of my beer.

comment I think I ruined my first brew
obvious note (that sometimes is easy to overlook), you should sanitize the beer thief before using it. (or sanitize your hydrometer if you're putting it directly into the fermenting beer)

comment I think I ruined my first brew
Brian, I'm with yhw42, don't worry too much about the suger. You'll end up with a less alcoholic beer. Just call it a session pilsner and you're fine. As long as you didn't throw in the sanitizer you should end up fine. Does the beer in your bucket look kinda like this? jimsbeerkit.co.uk/images/brewing_24hr_yeast_head.jpg

comment What is a good definition of beer?
I thought the restriction was to only barley, [from wikipedia] "...The restriction of grains to barley..." I am very likely misunderstanding the law. Do you have any clarification?

+1 for "normal" beers first. IMHO you need the basics first before going nuts. But that's just one man's opinion

+1, I've had only one or two bottles blow in over 20 batches and they were in the first batch.

+1 re overfilling, one of the guys in my brewclub "overfills" all of his bottles, he likes the way it carbonates better, and he's been brewing for over a decade.

comment first time racking and bottling…
agreed, I brew with my brother so we're always double checking. "Did you remember the priming sugar?" and without fail, every brew session there's an "oops, almost forgot that"

comment Is an immersion chiller really necessary?
I'm impressed, my 5 gallon chilling in a pot took well over 2 hours (one night over 3). So for me it was essential.
