I'm usually pretty patient, but I have an Austin HB Supply Pliny clone that I bottled 11 days ago. Sampled some at bottling, and even then I was surprised that the beer was fairly balance despite the 17oz of hops. Anyway, 11 days in the bottle and I'm tempted to put on in the fridge for tomorrow night's Red Sox game. I'm drinking an IPA now that I was patient enough to wait 3.5 weeks for. I'm not usually like this, but I'm getting the urge. What would you do? It's only one bottle.

I would do it. Then do another a week later and so on. You can see the difference in aging really well this way.

Do it - it will ease the urge. Just do one. And buy a sixer of good brew for the rest of the night

Drink one! If it is good... drink some more!

Now that it's in the fridge, maybe 10pm tonight would be enough for everything to settle. Hmmm.

I want to get one of those electric dog collars for myself. I will program it to shock when I reach for beer before it is ready. I bottled an APA on 3/18, and I now have 3 22 oz'ers left.

10 PM? Wow! You have willpower, that's for sure. I'd drink it as soon as it was cool!
