Seriously, your beer deserves to be given more than 3 weeks to be at its best. I am not being glib or condescending or trying to be a smart-ass here. I think you should bite the bullet and take commercial beer, and take your homebrew on the next trip so it has time to be what it should be.

Ya I usually keep mine in carboys minimum of 3 weeks.. not the maximum.. but we will see. I split the batches in different carboys... soo maybe I will just take one... its a wheat anyways... soo young is the way to go. Thanks tho

3 weeks can definitely be done. I brewed an Amarillo Blonde on 4/21 and the keg was tapped and kicked on Friday night during a tailgate.... I do think that bottling will make this a little harder though, I had the advantage of leaving in primary for about 17 days then transferring to keg and force carbing at about 30 psi for a few days.

It was a hit at the tailgate, but I know that it could have been better if I would have waited a few more weeks of conditioning. Which is why I always brew 10 gallon batches!

Soo letting my beer mellow out and properly condition.. but it seems to have a bit of a bitter taste due to the rinds I added. Any recomendations ppl have the mellow this flavor out?? This is just a thought, but could I add a sour yeast to hopefully mellow out the bitter??

I love my homebrew ... And I love micro IPA's, but for some reason nothing goes better with camping than brass monkeys. Ice cold 40's of Old English - drink 1/3rd, top off with orange juice. Sounds gross, but terrific around the camp fire. Don't knock it until you've tried it.
