Hang tight! All good things come to those homebrewers willing to wait.

i think i may just take a vacation for a week.. lol... something to occupy my mind...

it's funny really.. i started this as a hobby... and I've found it to be a bit consuming..

meant to spend about $100 on supplies and just do 1 at a time whenever i felt like it..

now I have 3 fermenting and have spent roughly $500 on doo-dads, kegs, equip, pots, etc, etc, etc.... and the list goes on and on and on and on..lol

Yup. It's not cheap to get a nice set up. But once you have it... man it sure is nice to have a frothy one right from the tap!

While you are waiting, brew another one and fill that Primary. Get that pipeline going.

Cheers
