Pipeline. Brew a lot. When you think you have enough beer. Brew more. I'm learning this now. Once you have a full pipeline, you won't think about that beer you just brewed, since you'll have several on hand to drink while you wait!

As a new brewer, patience is the absolute hardest thing to learn but if you are a good student you will be handsomely rewarded with good beer.

Once the pipeline begins filling up and you get into a routine things become much easier and waiting no longer is an issue!

+1 to the pipeline. Also, get some brewing software. You can spend time creating and playing with recipes. It will subtract from the time you spend standing in front of and staring at your fermenter.

I moved a month ago which destroyed my pipeline. I have a 4 tap kegerator and 2 beer drinkers to support in our house, so I have been brewing my ass off to play catch up.

Ive brewed 7 batches in 30 days....Once you get ahead of the curve it gets a lot less onerous.

Occupy yourself by brewing another batch. Maybe another after that. Read. Study. Sample commercial examples.

More often as not,patience is something that must be learned. But when your patience is finally rewarded,you'll get it. We all do,each in our own time.

I just started in January, I found that it I needed extra better bottles immediately. I have 2 batches bottled and three in fermenters, one on deck for this weekend. Before you know it you will have to check notes on when what was brewed because you will be bottling, brewing, and sampling other batches.

As it's been said. Brew a lot. I brew a lot of lagers and sours, so I've learned patience. But when I do a sour, it may need upwards of 3 years. My answer? I do them every couple of months so there's always a batch coming due.

The same with my ales. It is a rare day that my fermenters are empty!
