Well dttaylor, it does sound like you make be tearing into them early. You'll find that time does play a large roll in the conditioning of beer. Once bottled, they should be left undisturbed for at least 4 week at room temp. So if you tap them before that time, be assured that you will not be drinking them in their prime.
Also, to remove doubt, it's best to start a log book, and keep notes on each batch you do. You'll find that information will come in really handy.
