Hmmm...I thought I had agitated the crap out of it for 2 minutes before I checked it. But that might explain why the sample flavors were so different. Maybe the sweetness will drop and the bitterness will come back between fermentation and bottle conditioning. Thanks folks! And WissaBrewGuy: brilliant. Sometimes the most simple, obvious steps are totally overlooked! Check the baseline...duh! Thanks! I checked it and, compensating for the water temp, it looks right.
