...and I have a massive unbearable urge to chuck one in the freezer and drink it asap...

I thought waiting while it was in the primary was difficult. This is worse!

HaHa!

Go out a buy some Import stuff you have never had before, use the excuse that you need the bottles. That is what I did to pass the time.

Aw hell, do it. I taste one a week for those three weeks. It will help you get a better feel for the process. Just make sure you stop at one per week.

Well curb it gorgeous....you'll make it through this hardest part...

just think this is the first and only time you'll have this happen...you have if I recall correctly another one in primary,,,and that means you have an empty fermenter open...fill it again..and by the time you crack your first beer you will be bottling another batch...

We call it having a pipeline...

Panzerman's right...whenver I have a gap in mine it's off to the store for "Bottle restock and new style research" (if only I could find a way to write it off my taxes.)

lol Revvy, I already refilled that second primary... so I have the two primaries full again, and I look at those a couple of times a day (beer eye candy) and I pick up one of my bottles and squeeze it and look at it a few times a day... sigh... lol... there's only so much looking one can do!

lol

you know it's already in the freezer!


dont be too bumed out. i tried my first batch after 5 days and it was not tasty.
after two weeks it was, and then it was just gone.
i did manage to hide one from myself for 5 or 6 weeks, and it was much, much better.

im drinkin eds haus pale right now, fermentor for 3 weeks, and bottle for four, and it is still not good!
it was my first ag, i had to have messed it up. nobody would rave about this beer im drinking. i thinnk ed's haus pale is over 1200 gallons brewed thus far.
not this crap im drinkin

it needs a few more weeks (err, months?)
