First of all, Thank You all for existing!
I had an ok run through my first brew yesterday (a pale ale kit), but a few glitches were enough to get my nerves up.
I woke up in the middle of the night thinking of my beer, started looking things up on my phone and stumbled across this wonderful place. I found so much info here that my nerves were quickly calmed. The problem is, instead of going back to sleep I spent the rest of the night reading forum posts! (an ok trade-off in my book)
Best of all, before I went to work my air lock was starting to bubble! Now I just have to work on this patience thing I've read about.
