Not sure on the taste but you are bottle conditioning a little on the cold side and that will make it take longer to carb and condition. Put those bottles somewhere at 70f or a little warmer and check again in a week or so.

I wondered that too, but 65º ambient shouldn't be too warm for those yeasts.

That is what I think. When I made my first batches, I would have described the green taste as "wine"
Sharp alcohol and yeast bite.

65 degree ambient temp could be closer to 70+ internal temps.

Hey folks, clear something up for me please. The OP is using a swamp cooler. So, shouldn't the temp of the water bath surrounding the bucket/carboy be the same as the temp of the liquid within the container? I'm thinking of the thermal mass of all the water surrounding. I hope I'm right because I rely on swamp coolers/thermal mass to moderate all my temps- fermentation, cold crashing, lagering.

You are right. I must have missed that when I read the posts.
I do think that the plastic bucket must provide a small insulating effect though, so internal temps could be a degree or two higher.
I think I even read once that internal temps at center of wort mass can be higher than perimeter.

Yeah...I was checking the water temps pretty religiously the first few days and was pretty impressed with how well it was holding the temp I was shooting for. I figured 65F...allowing for 5 degrees or so internal...not putting me much over 70F.
I've got a batch I was going to brew this weekend...I'll try 5 degrees cooler on this one...compare the results.

What struck me a bit odd was...when I tried one after 3 days...it was perfect. That flavor didn't show up till I tried the 2nd one at the 10 day point.

My first beer did that too. First couple of beers were good then got a bite to it after another week or so. I found out my water co uses chloromine and started treating it with campden tabs my 4th batch and been great since. The first 3 batches (all untreated) all had an off flavor to varying degrees.
