This was my first brew as well. I turned out OK/drinkable despite my several errors, which included pushing the bung into the fermenter and fishing it out with a coat hanger AND a blow out. I aged a 6 pack for over a year and it actually tasted really good. Just goes to show that time heals all beer wounds too. So long as you follow the rules it'll turn out good!
