Default Itching to brew my next batch... can't wait!

So with my first batch not turning out so well and deciding to age my second batch a good while before I try it, I'm itching to brew up my third batch. Hopefully this time I can cut down on the errors I made the last two times I brewed!

I'm looking to make sag's Volition Imperial IPA:

The thing is... I'll have to buy a new carboy because the one I currently have is in use. Did I mention that I really don't have any bottles to use either? I might be addicted to this new hobby.

Welcome, it is an addiction. If you have any contact with local bars, this would be a good place to start, with NY Eve coming lots of empties.

If not take a look @ these bottles, they may get out of a bind, just remember to keep anything w/ hops that is bottled in green or clear glass out of direct sunlight, most people don"t like skunky homebrew.

You may also want to do something smaller so you can drink it. That Imperial IPA is going to be another ager.

You're right, but I can keep myself occupied with some commercial beer I have floating around in the mean time.
