Little help please.

But now it is bottled, so will it age in the bottles as well?

It will. Not as rapidly as in bulk, but provided the smell isn't caused by bacteria, that should clean up eventually.

Yeah it still will. Just be patient with it. Like I said wait about 2 months before you try a bottle. You should let them condition at whatever temp you fermented them at. Then when the 2 months goes by put one in the fridge for a couple days and then try it.

Make a yeast starter.

100g of light DME to 1000 ml water is ~1.040 and is what I always do. Add a little yeast nutrient (either FAN, or yeast energizer). This will ensure you have enough yeast to do the job without them getting stressed out (which is when they produce off flavors.)

So you think it is a stressed yeast thing. So do a starter or two packs. Can anyone tell me more about why stressed yeast makes off flavors?

I think entire books have been written on that topic. Like this one, for example.

The website doesn't list what yeast comes in the kit. Does it come with lager yeast? In the future you should wait for the yeast to drop and the beer to clear before bottling, the yeast need to reabsorb things like acetaldehyde and diacetyl created during fermentation and usually don't flocculate until they are done with this unless the temperature drops.

I contacted them about the yeast because it just came in small silver pack (dry yeast). The guy at midwest sent me a link to this and said it was about the same. http://www.midwestsupplies.com/munto...ale-yeast.html
