Hi all,

I'm another rookie brewer, having a crack at brewing cheap beer that's very drinkable. I started a Thomas Cooper's Pilsener last weekend, hopefully will be bottling by saturday this week, so far it's bubbling away happily. A friend and I each have a kit, and we are sharing things we find, mistakes we make and successes we brew, so hopefully this will be a fun little venture.
So that'll probably do for an intro. I have a blog, which is linked below, along with the actual recipe I found for the Pilsener.

Welcome to the hobby msb. You're probably already across it, but don't rush the bottling. Not sure what your temperature, fermentable ingredients or yeast, but one week is unlikely to be long enough. A rushed batch and bottle bombs are likely to put you off the hobby.

That aside, brew lots, read lots and talk to others. You'll be a pro in no time.
