So I just cracked my first bottle of my SNPA clone (Midwest I think?) and it tastes a bit malty. More to the point, a bit too much like wort.
I assume it's because it's been only 7 days in the bottle but I just wanted to test it. I dunno if this is to be expected.
a few pieces of data:
4 week primary at 69-70 degrees - no secondary
late LME addition. 1/3 at 60, 2/3 at 15 (it's quite light luvibond wise)
7 days in bottles at 70 degrees. primed with standard priming sugar pack
fairly carbonated for only 7 days. head dissipated quickly but two centimeter head remained throughout consumption. A bit flat.
after 24 hours I had TONS of airlock activity that lasted a few days. I didn't take a hydro reading (no real need to with kits) but there's no question about fermentation.
any thoughts? i won't crack my next one for another two weeks I'll report back then.
