Congratz on your first batch! You're now entering easily the toughest part of the whole process: the waiting...
I just finished bottling my second batch (a red ale) about 10 days ago, cracked one open to make sure carbonation was occurring (and, to be honest, I was a little impatient and thirsty
), I popped the top and heard that delightful hiss! It was still early in the game, but it tasted great! Much better than my first batch.
Wait until you start your second batch! You'll be surprised at how much easier it goes. Enjoy learning! I sure am!
