Default Brewing is fun

I like the whole making a batch, waiting for the fermating to complete, and bottling was fun. But wait for the beer to condtion in the bottles sucks I have week down one more to go. Before I can taste my beer

Open one now and taste it if you like! Just don't be disappointed if it is a bit flat

This is totally a beginner problem, isn't it?

Hubby and I have brewed two batches so far and we're still waiting for the first ones to finish bottle conditioning. Since aren't going to get set up for kegging anytime in the near future (no room in our apartment), we're just going to have to make sure to schedule at least one brew day a month to make sure we never have to wait this long for a homebrew again!

I can't even wait that long. I pour my hydrometer sample into a glass and drink that.

if it tastes good warm and flat, it's gotta be good cold & fizzed

pipeline definitely makes it a little easier, but I still get anxious to try one from a batch that's not finished conditioning yet

Like my Maibock. 3 weeks is up tomorrow, but I'm still gonna pop one or two in the fridge and try them tonight

Oh I made an awesome excuse to drink one weekly. As a beginner I considered it scientific research to educate myself with how beer developed over time in the bottle.

But keep in mind what you have now is NOT what the beer will be even 2 weeks from now. It really is amazing the changes it goes through.
