How am I supposed to wait?
I read the other day that the ideal minimum maturing time for home brewed beer is the value of the original gravity above 1000 divided by 2, in days. That's another 3 weeks, minimum, until I can drink my brew, that is something I am struggling with! I don't think I'll be able to resist a sneaky pint before then, obviously just for research purposes. Learning the noble art of home brewing, it seems, is a journey and to truly understand the maturation process of the beer I must obviously taste it at various points along that road.
