Default Another newbie question...

Ok,
Since I already asked one newb question today... Why stop now!!!

I transfered from primary to secondary this evening. I took a sample to get a reading, and decided to take my first sample taste. What should I expect? Should it be fairly tastey at this point (1 week)?

The beer is an American Amber extract kit from B3 if that helps at all!!!

Once again, THANKS ALL!!!

You should get a general sense of what to expect your beer should taste like after it has mellowed some. Basically if you don't notice any off flavors (like band-aid for one, signifying contaminaion) you should be okay.

Agree with the above remarks. You will get some basic idea but it will still be nowhere as good as after a few more weeks.

If you want to try to get a carbonated idea of what it will taste like just add a bit of carbonated water (BudLight). I've been known to stick a glass of green beer in the fridge for a bit and then add a smidge of BL. Actually, I've only done it twice but it did make the green a bit smoother.
