The second batch, still fermenting, already tastes absolutely incredible. I can't believe I made it...
Yeah, green beer gets all of us when we first start out. I remember my first brew, tried a bottle after a week (d@mn kit instructions) and was like 'what'd I do?' after two weeks, it got better and after three it was a great beer. One of the hardest things for new brewers is patience, because you're so excited that you can make beer at home. Once you build up a pipeline, it'll get really easy to leave beers be for as long as they need.
Awesome to hear your brew turned out really good!
they'll just keep getting better as you get more into it and get your process down.
