Default Tell me it'll be ok. (An impatient beginner)

I know, RDWHAHB, but I was holding out hope that my Austin Homebrew order would have shipped today, I placed the order on Saturday. Yea, I went for the cheap shipping, so I suppose it's ok. I'll have to wait once my first batch is brewed anyway before I can enjoy it. Just needed to let off a little steam, thanks for listening.

When I first started, I ordered my kit from some website (can't remember it now) but it was apparently back ordered. It took a month to get it. Believe me, I know how you feel. But to pass the month, I just read every post I could on HBT and by the time I started brewing, I felt like I knew exactly what I was doing!


Don't worry, Austin HBS ships very fast, and if it hasn't shipped today, it will be by tomorrow.

No worries... before you know it you'll be popping open a bottle of a beer that you made yourself and you'll swear that it's the best beer that you've ever tasted.

It takes a little while - Plus UPS sucks at times.

I was ON TIME until they changed ON TIME to the NEXT day which was again ON TIME!

However - Ben25 is 100% correct. Use the time to learn the things you WISH you would have known BEFORE the first batch.

Every batch I made up to #4 I wish I would have known that one little tweak I learned between batches.

It all came together on #4 . . . #1 sort of sucked as I burnt the pot and my Cold Break was way too long!

You'll be fine bsay, but I totally understand your impatience. I'm climbing the walls right now because I have no beer, and my equipment is 125 miles away ...

Yup, it's based on this (not necessarily clone kits, but styles of beer):
Black Dragon Cherry Stout, because i love Guinness and cherry anything!
Gold Dragon Wheat, i am a Boulevard Fan
Blue Dragon Belgian Wit, Blue moon, need I say more?
Bronze Dragon Amber Ale, The soon to be Father-in-Law loves Fat Tire
Red Dragon Irish Red Ale, I am a Killian's fan, though I've always thought it had too much of a metallic taste, I'm going to try to tweak it out of my version.

I am going with the Dragon theme, since I have a giant model of a Black Dragon sitting on my "bar" (two stacked small book shelves and an old dorm fridge). It's from Wizards D&D minis.

If you're anything like me, you will be obsessively reading these boards until you brew. (And again after.)
