I've only finished one batch but I tasted one bottle after 1 week, then started drinking them every couple days after 2 weeks, and it's now been 3 weeks since bottling. The carbonation level hasn't changed noticeably since that first bottle I opened after a week.

I don't want to arrange an unveiling night in a few weeks and this stuff not have worked properly or taste funny??
Like someone else already said I always pop one open at one or two weeks to see if there's any CO2 developing. You should hear a "hiss" after popping the cap but just because it hisses doesn't mean that your beer is or should be carbonated. And then you might have some beers that take weeks before you hear that tell-tale hiss so don't be alarmed if you don't hear it after one or two weeks.

Your average ale though should start hitting it's stride about 2-3 months of bottle conditioning at least.

Your avatar reminds me of Joe Cartoon's "gerbil bar". Funny bit on youtube.

Thanks for the replies. I didn't refrigerate for very long before trying mine, so maybe that's part of it. Gonna let em sit another week before I bother them again!
