Ditto on the good luck. We'll talk to you again in 20 minutes when you forget something, or need last second advice. Or in an hour when you post an "Is my beer ruined?????" thread.

What are you brewing?

Welcome! I highly recommend you go and pick up another fermenter to start a second batch tomorrow!

Good man! Your beer will thank you for it.

In a few weeks, when the beer is ready to drink, you'll finally be able to RDWHAHB.

Edited: Speaking of which, I'm gonna go grab a Hefe Weizen from the fridge to wish you luck!
