Default Sampling Bottled Beer - Help! I can't wait!

On Friday the 23rd I bottled my first home brew in 14 years. It has been 4 days and I am having a hard time waiting to sample the beer. I want to wait a week but am going crazy to taste one.

I think I have about some 50+ batches under my belt and have tasted many green beers, but the hiatus has been too LONG!

What can I do to calm myself and make it until Friday without opening a bottle?

Oh the suspense!

buy a good craft beer, peel off the label and pretend that its yours. do this while brewing another batch, and bask in the the delusion.

Brilliant idea! My wife may just have me condemned.

I always crack one open green. Mostly because i have the patience of a 2year old, but also i real do like tasting how much a beer changes while it matures.

If you cant wait, then dont! its your beer, enjoy it!

I fully support the "brew another batch" method of staving off the desire...too bad my bank account doesn't....

I did brew another batch and that has helped my keep my patience until now. I even started my yeast farm going. I only have to do my slants and I will be in full production (summer mode).

I have them at 66 degrees now. I am going to chill one down to 50 tonight and pop the top!

Get a 6er of Sierra Nevada and brew another batch.

Then get into your beer tomorrow.

You know what's really calming is a good beer with some good food.
Last time I got antsy I bought myself some Pilsner and a big plate of my favorite sushi. That, ma friend, is a relaxing meal.
