Ok since bottling, I have allowed the bottles to condition for 2 weeks before trying my first one. I am sad to say that the results were horrendous. Prior to adding the Squirt, the Hefeweizen was absolutely perfect...smelled great, tasted even better and had a beautiful color. I tried my first one on the two week mark (which was a few weeks ago) and my intial thoughts were sheer disappointment. At first, although it had carbonation when I opened and poured it, it tasted flat...and I am guessing this is because the soda I used. On top of the flat taste, it smelled like a gym sock and tasted very strange. I do not think the beer has anything wrong with it like infection, but just strange because of the soda. I am not sure if this has ever been tried, but hey, you can't learn without doing.
Then a allowed another week to pass and tried again. Same horrid smell and the taste got a little better and the flat flavor seemed as if it was going away. Gave it another week and tried yet again. Smell does not seem to be going away but carbonation is starting to shine through. It still tastes very strange and is not enjoyable to drink. I am guessing that it is probably just a crappy batch (I'm sure we've all made em) but either way, I am not a quitter and plan on allowing it to keep going. Maybe in a month or so, I will try again and see if the flavor improves. Till then, it will be stored in a nice dark 66F closet.
