I don't have the equipment to start another but the planning is well underway. Enjoy!
I've done 2 now as well, and am still waiting for the first one to be ready.
I cheated and have opened bottles every few days to see how the taste will change over time as the beer conditions.
I think I might do a wheat beer next time, people seem to like those and I'm a fan of easy drinking paler coloured beers. I think I will do an American wheat beer though, because the brewstore in my area only has regular dry yeast in stock, and I don't want to have to special order anything special.
Anyways, I agree totally. Making beer is awesome! I'm glad I decided to give it a whirl, I just wish i started 3 weeks earlier and had a homebrew in my hand right now!
