It could be either or both, actually. One week in the bottle is not very long, so it may not be fully carbed up yet which would explain the watery taste. Let them sit for 2 more weeks and then try another one; it should be better.

If you post your recipe and process, we might be able to help determine if that is also at fault.


Primary/Secondary: #109 Rye, #110 APA

Kegged: #106 American Wheat, #107 IPA, #108 Nut Brown

Planned: Red IPA, American Brown
