I just started a little while ago to, and I think you're doing fine. In fact, I wish I was brewing as quick as you!

The only thing I can recommend is getting BeerSmith. You can search around for stuff about it, but it's a great program. It's really helped me figure out what ingredients do to the beer, how the numbers correlate, etc. Additionally, it's a great way to log all of the exact details for your brew, and add notes - so you have always have a recipe on that awesome (or horrible) beer, and all the revisions of it that made it what you wanted it to be. (Without looking for that loose paper, that you jotted the notes on, somewhere on that desk...) Then, when you progress on (hopefully I do, some day), you can use it to start building your own recipes.

I'll make sure to write down how many times I wake up in the night and check to make sure my "babies" are doing alright, along with the moon phase. No need to write down breakfast. I always just eat a plate of bacon with Chocolate milk .

Thank you everyone. I have truly found a great community guide me in the right direction. Within another week, I should have three 5 gallon batches, a 3 gallon batch and a one gallon batch going. I won't promise I will stop there though!

I'm pretty sure that homebrewers have a genetic predisposition to systemic circulatory Saccharomyces infection. You may be infected! Either get to a doctor or let it take hold. The only thing it will harm is your pocketbook. Literally. I think the only real limitation I have on my brewing addiction is finances.

Definitely not too fast. Once your first batch is gone you'll be like... I'm not fast enough!
