The beer sounds very young to me. What was your recipe and process?

Sweetness in a dry stout? Tell us more about the recipe and process.

If it's sweet it's either not done fermenting or underhopped.

ok so its been 24 hours and some of the sweetness went away i guess drinking it a few hours after i kegged it wasnt a good idea it got better in one day so i bet it will become normal... its a AHS kit named "dry stout"
