Yeah, I just wondered if there were any ill effects from mixing corn sugar with DME as I did.
I agree that time should cure it, but dammit I want it now!!!!
Actually I just tried another one (tried the last about 4 days ago) and it was much less bitter, but very yeasty. I'm not going to touch another until mid-May, when I get back from my trip to the USAF NCO Academy. I should have a good crop by then.....my OSH clone (bottled), a high-gravity porter (bottled), and the Bavarian orange-coriander weize (secondary....will be bottled this weekend).
Pretty good motivation, eh?
