How bout a recipe. Mash temps time, Ferement temps & length.

Lagers need more than a month before they are ready. Heck, my ales take 8 weeks before I drink them (except for the Hefe).

What does it taste like? I agree with Ed that it will take longer than a month. I'm just now carbing my Oktoberfest that I brewed back in June.

Post your recipe, mash temps/times as Ed requested.

"AG smell"

When I read your title, for some reason, I was thinking barn smell.
