I just started a few months ago as well and have made the Shiraz, Sauvignon Blanc and have a Merlot fermenting now. I was surprised at how easy the kits are to do; but I agree - I am itching to pop open a cork to try it out! I hope to hold out until at least Thanksgiving.
I may consider putting some of my next batch in a few 12 oz beer bottles and capping as "tasters" to monitor the progress as it ages.
My next thought is to try one of the Island Mist kits and consider kegging and carbonating for something different.
Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.
Kegged: Brown Ale, Porter, Sweet Stout, IPA
