Default First Batch Blues

I have my first batch (its a Brown Ale recipe from my lhbs) in the secondary and its been in there for 11 days... and its absolutely killing me to wait! I know that with time the beer will taste better but i just have this urge to start drinking it straight out of the secondary... LOL I picture myself with the auto-siphon in the secondary and racking straight into my mouth Is it just me that gets this excited???

The best thing you can do is start researching and gathering stuff for a second brew. It will take your mind off the first one for a bit, which makes it easier to let it sit till the time is right.

no, but i have a solution for you. bottle it. then brew one batch a week over the next 3 weeks and you'll be ready to start drinking it
