comment Is it necessary to aerate wort when pitching onto an existing yeast cake?
Any reason why not to re-use yeast? It's a pretty common practice.

comment Proof dry yeast, or just pitch it?
My LHBS, which prides itself on fresh, high-quality ingredients, insists that I pitch dry yeast directly into the wort. For older/sus yeast, that may not be the case.

comment Are some types of beers easier to brew than others?
Pre-fab worts are an easy, cheap way for you to cut your teeth on the fermentation & bottling processes (you don't have to invest in a boil kettle or primary fermenter, and you cut out the most involved part of making the beer); however, if you like beer, you probably won't like kit beer (the Brew House pale ale was my first beer, and I didn't find it anywhere near as good as extract beer -- a little more effort and supplies will make you a much better beer!).
