I just bottled my first 1 gallon brew. Is a hefewiezen from a local store. FOllowed instructions, well sanitized. Was in primary 4 days, then glass secondary 14 days. OG 1.024, final at bottling 1.013. The brew was clear, but darker than the usual hefe, smelled strongly (!) of alcohol, almost like whiskey. Tasted too bitter. Not like hops bitter, but like medicine bitter. The hops pellet were left in throughout the process. I bottled it and plan to put it some where where an explosion would cause minimal damage, just in case, and let it sit a month or so. ANy ideas about the SG and bitterness?
