LOL Reading this reminded me of when I first started brewing back in the early 90's. Always worried ( Even though Charlie P told me not to) always rushing things. And I always made good beer. Now they sit in the fermenter for a couple months before I get around to kegging and it's even better beer. Granted my process has changed and the ingredients are of better quality. I guess RDWHAHB really does work! Congratulations!
