Ha, too funny, I'm glad you posted that comment as I just bottled my hopnogg yesterday, took a swig and wasn't impressed! Not that I expected to be, I just expected it to be an IPA sans carbonation. I hope that it will improve significantly after two weeks, sounds like it will based on Vassar's comments.
This is my first brew so not sure what to expect and thinking maybe all the beer from kits may not be that great, but hopefully that is not the case and it turns out great! As long as it's decent I'll tackle another batch of beer, maybe a brewers best belgian triple or english pale ale.
Oh, so on another note, I only got a measly 36 bottles of beer, granted two were 15 oz or so but still. I did stir up the sediment on the last 2,3 inches of beer and didn't want to risk bottling swill so junked that.
