Wheat Beer Too Sweet before bottling
I recently made a Wheat Beer (from the Cooper's Wheat Extract), adding 4 lbs. of dry wheat malt to the boil. Let sit in primary for 1 week - then in secondary for 2 weeks. Since I'm going out of town tomorrow, I wanted to bottle. After racking to the bottling bucket (with the 3/4 cup priming corn sugar, I tasted the beer (before bottling) and it's very sweet. I had a really good fermentation (OG 1.06, FG 1.01) and had to use a blowoff hose the first 4 days. Anyway...this beer tastes really, really sweet. Will that sweetness go away as it ages in the bottles, or not? Should I expect these to start blowing up in the bottles? Not sure what to do at this point.
