Default Will acetaldehyde fade?

I just got done bottling a scottish ale brewed with wlp028 and there was tons of acetaldehyde. I just checked the gravity three days ago and it wasn't there. I was wondering if it will fade or will i be stuck with apple beer.

It should fade completely, if it's from the beer being "green".

What yeast strain did you use? I've noticed that some British yeast strains produce that flavor, and if it's a yeast characteristic it might not fade as much.

Edited because I'm a dork- WLP028 is the strain, as noted in the first post. Duh! Well, that strain is supposed to be "clean" so unless you fermented too warm, it is probably just from the beer being young and some aging should fix it.
