When you first start brewing their is a moment where your like "this is legal and I can do this?" I know you've got 45 beers, but this brew should be treated like gold. Drink a little now and enjoy the victory, share a little with friends, and make sure to save some to drink in 3,4,5,6 weeks from now. Don't feel bad about buying beer, because it will make your home brew last longer. Now get started on the next batch ASAP! And buy some more fermenter's.

Congrats on having the patience to wait two weeks. I remember waiting 3 weeks on my first pale ale. 4 weeks & they were spot on. Even my wife loved it. My first turned out pretty good,my first IPA amazingly so. But after all those batches,going from AE E/SG to PB/PM BIAB,my IPA's are finally getting really good. Many people tell me it's very good. Seems like you're getting there pretty quick.

Congrats! Ditto on the suggestion to get a good pipeline going.

Congeatulations! It's not hard to make good beer and nobody accidentally gets poisoned or goes blind. Welcome to the hobby.

Awesome! I just tried my first 5 gallon batch a couple days ago. It was pretty good for ~10 days in the bottle. I know it will get better. I have the Caribou Slobber in primary right now. I just picked up a 6 gallon bucket to use as a secondary. I'll rack the CS in about a week and start another batch. This is a great hobby!
