First brew is in the bottles. The last bottle burbled with air while filling, so i decided to just drink it. Despite the priming sugar sweetness and a quite a few yeast burps, it tastes great!! So hard to wait to drink it all

Gotta love the feeling of having your first batch in the bottles; that was when I knew I was hooked.

Congratulations! Now all you have to do is wait for ~3 weeks.

Sweet. Be sure to put a six pack away and forget about it for a few months.

Congrats! But definitely learn to savor some unless you plan to brew the same thing again in short order? I usually put at least 6-12 of my bottles away for a minimum of 4-6 months later... Almost always, they've gotten better with time. There are exceptions (low gravity wheats, etc), but a few months will do almost any beer good...

Interesting that this came up b/c I just cracked open a beer of mine that was over a year-old yesterday - a spiced holiday ale I brewed almost exactly a year ago - yay, its my 1 year brewing anniversary!! Anyway, it was still pretty darn tasty - I'm assuming the heavy dose of spices has somewhat 'preserved' this since its low gravity and still very good... but anyway, it was crazy to think I brewed it 1 year ago and it was still pretty much just fine.

Yeah, the full cases of just-bottled brew still make me smile. I've bottled 30 gallons in the past 3 weeks, and am up to my eyeballs in homebrew. I love it. I'm gonna get into kegging soon. Maybe after the new year. But I'll still bottle even then, because I brew too much to keg all of it.

I remember the first bottle from my first batch. Still gives me chills thinking about.

Did you just bottle those by cracking the spigot open and closed for each bottle?

if so, you might want to look into a bottling wand to make life a little easier.
