So I've read a hundred times that my brew would be better with a little time, but being new I was very impatient. So I tried my brew and it was good. So I kept drinking. What do the experienced members know?
Flash forward about three months. Just finished my last 22oz of my first brew (a two hearted clone). It was better than any of the previous. Currently eating crow. My apologies to the veterans. You were right (as usual).
