The man who intoxicates himself on bad whisky is sometimes moved to kill his wife and set his house on fire, but the victim of applejack is capable of blowing up a whole town with dynamite and of reciting original poetry to every surviving inhabitant.

– “A Wicked Beverage,” New York Times, April 10, 1894

I had this same problem until I started stirring my beer.

Me too!

My advice to the OP? Wait a couple weeks longer than you have been waiting before you drink any beer. See if you don't get improvement.
This right here ^

I started giving the majority of my beers 4 weeks 'til time for the fridge and a week in there before it's time.

That helped me out greatly when I was first starting out. Revvy is correct on letting your bottles sit a few weeks before serving, too. It's hard to wait that long when your first starting out, I know. But it's worth it when ALL of your bottles taste good.

I got what you guys were saying,I'm not that dense. But I understand where the op is comng from,& was trying to think of a good way to say it. Ambient air temp would effect the bottles in a mass storage device differently, to a small extent,from the outer perimeter to the center of the storage medium. I figured it also depends on how well the priming solution really mixes. Not how well it's imagined too. There are no absolutes other than the vodka.
