...and I decided to be that guy tonight and open one just to see....
We are all "that guy" at one time or another. Sometimes you just have to have a wee taste to dispel all the beer gremlins whispering in your ear, "You probably ruined it. I bet it's awful." Just remember not to feed them after midnight--aw heck! Go ahead.
"So you say you just brewed your first batch of beer. Welcome to the obsession." --me, to every first time brewer I ever meet.
What's this nonsense about waiting two weeks? I've never made it that long before cracking one open, and I can't seem to fill my pipeline fast enough that I'm not eager to try my latest beer. I'm bottling an IPA next weekend (Green Flash West Coast clone), and I'm gonna try really hard to hold out at least two weeks before trying one of those.
I drink one a week after bottling just to see how the process is going and to ensure that I didn't over carb the beer and create bottle bombs. Yes it does hinder me from having more beer later but oh well.
I drank my Pineapple Ale last night after being bottled for 1 week. This is what I call my accident beer as my efficiency on my first AG was very low so I added pineapple just to add something to it.
