I've recently begun doing this in a few batches. Come holday time I will see how well it works.
Cool. This is how most of the recipes in Beer Captured are printed, so I started doing all of my batches that way. I've been very happy with the results.

Hey, to go back to they yeasty flavor, I just finished my first brew, a Hefe, and after letting it sit in the primary for a week and a half, then another 1.5 weeks in the secondary, and another week in the bottles I cracked one open today for my birthday.

There was a strong yeasty smell and taste to the beer. The beer still tasted decent, but nothin that I would really want to give to my friends. Not sure if this is because I just didn't let the beer age enough , or i did something wrong. Any reassurance would be helpful, thanks!

Probably just needs a couple of more weeks in the bottles. Let us know how they turn out.

Yep, that's the "week in the bottle" taste. Give it a couple more weeks and it should taste fine.

Haha, yeah, the week in the bottle taste, nothing like it, and it is quite temporary.

Apparently the best things in life come to those who wait. I have been waiting years for some things and still nothing. apparently it is a waiting game. ...wonder who else is playing and what the rules are.... I bet they are cheating - that would be what the problem is. Go on, crack one, you know you want to!!!

Don't forget too, if you are brewing a whit, your yeast is going to favor the banana yeasty flavor for a while. Even after 1month. Advise: let it sit for at least 8 weeks in bottles. By that time, your whit will be phenominal.

KIM2 - Darker brews also need long lagering (to put aside for long periods of time) times.

Cheers!
