Congrats!

Keep your fermentation temperature under control, give the yeast time to do its thing (usually at least 3 weeks in primary before bottling, and then 3 weeks minimum in the bottle to carbonate). Patience is going to be the hardest part. Seems like a great time to get your second batch in the fermenter

Cheers!

I've thought about switching to 1 gallon batches just so I could brew every weekend. But considering the time savings between 1 gallon and 5 gallon isn't a whole lot, my wife would never had it. I'm lucky she lets me get away with a double header once a month.

Once you get the hang of it, go for 5 gallons at a time. Build your pipe line up. And do not forget to brew something your wife would like.
