So I've read a hundred times that my brew would be better with a little time, but being new I was very impatient. So I tried my brew and it was good. So I kept drinking. What do the experienced members know?

Flash forward about three months. Just finished my last 22oz of my first brew (a two hearted clone). It was better than any of the previous. Currently eating crow. My apologies to the veterans. You were right (as usual).

The first stout I ever made was a Guiness Draught clone. It was average at best. I dutifully drank up most of the bottles knowing the next would be better. Made a few other beers and forgot about the last two stouts at the bottom of the pile.

Fast forward one year. Average went to pretty darn good. Time wounds all heals. Or is that backwards?

I set aside two beers from each batch I have made (kinda like Noah) that I consume after 6 months just to see if there is a significant difference.

Even us veterans have a hard time keeping to our own advice. It's tough to keep a good batch very long.

Surprising thread title ha ha. I agree I am often impatient but it pays off every time I wait which is why I try to give it time and have some good drinks on hand to buy my time per se.

Actually, once you have a pipeline it's easier to let the new brews age properly. So the real lesson is brew more. More often!
