Default First time beer

Hi I brewed my first batch of red ale a few weeks back. Does anyone know how long it needs to sit once bottled? I opened one yesterday and it has enough carbonation but it has a slight yeast taste. Will it get better if it sits longer than a week?

Tons of threads on that. Search around, but the gist of all of them is 3 weeks at 70 degrees will get you carbonated (for lwoer gravity beers). It will also allow the beer to age and become less "green".
