So I bottled my first brew about....oh two weeks ago?
I tried it after 10 days....it was pretty much flat. Real malty....really not much to it.
I tried it tonight.
What a difference even four days makes!! It was carbed, a nice head, and it really developed a different feel all the way around. Honestly I had a friend over and I was trying explain why it wouldn't be good. I opened a Sierra Nevada to compare with my PA, and he actually preferred mine!
Also to boot the California Common is now in the secondary and I will brew my holiday ale before the end of the week.
Nice man! It probably tasted really malty and sweet because whatever you primed with wasn't completely eaten up by the yeasties yet. I made that mistake with my first beer as well and a few days later it was dry and tasty.
Congrats on the success and cheers!
