Green is a vague term and most of what it refers to should be gone before bottling anyway. It's so vague it's like saying you don't know why it tastes that way and simply blaming the age of the beer. I'm looking at a guide to off flavors I just can't find green. Green apple maybe? (sour/acidic)
You know, the owner's manual for my car doesn't say anything about your arm getting wet while you drive anywhere in the troubleshooting section. But experience has taught me to roll up my fukin window when it is raining!
To the OP, listen to the experience here and let your beer condition in the bottle for a minimum of three weeks before expecting great things. Will it have any carbonation at 1 week? Probably. Will it be at its peak? NO. Be patient and you will be rewarded with a better product.
