Congrats and welcome. Something I'm just now getting around to (4 batches into the addiction) is making sure the pieline is full of beer. I have a batch 1 week into bottling (english brown ale) and getting ready to bottle another batch today (stout). Neither of my first 2 batches lasted much beyond the 3 weeks. Pretty much, I can have the patience of a gnat sometimes.
I figure if I get impatient yet again and the english brown becomes the victim, then at least the stout will have time to age properly. I have a feeling both these batches will have time though. I sampled the English Brown yesterday and it tasted like how I would imagine bath water (without the soap) to taste.
Anyhow, I'm planning on brewing up a wheat probably next week. That way as I'm drinking the Stout, the Wheat will be aging.....
I guess, just keep the pipeline full is all I'm trying to say.
