comment Is it OK to starting fermentation while wort is still warm?
Palmer recommends against aerating the wort when it's hot (see answer)- haven't had a chance to check other sources yet, but he generally knows his stuff.

comment How do I cut my extract brewing cost?
See if you can get friends to sponsor your beers. I'm brewing a cider for a friend soon- it's my time/equipment, so he's paying for all the ingredients and getting half the batch (24/48 bottles)
