well, just tested the gravity, and its currently at 1.019. the kit says it should be between 1.012-1.015 when finished. You could smell the beer when I took the lid off. Not sure what exactly I was smelling, but it smelled nice! Took my hydrometer reading then figured I might as well sample the beer. It had a sort of Killians taste to it, with a slightly sweeter under tone, then a long after taste. Not sure of what. Kind of an unpleasant aftertaste. Sort of "chemical" like if you will maybe??? hard to describe. Didnt know if this would go away with finishing out the fermentation, or if thats just a flat beer sort of taste, that you dont notice with the carbonation?
