Very excited, I'll be tasting it in about 3 weeks...
So I got a little ahead of myself and tasted after two weeks, it was not as carbonated as it needs to be yet....
One thing I have to say right off the bat is mine seriously lacks any punch with regards to the hops. The hop charactor is very weak in both flavor and aroma...
I'm wondering if this is because my water is fairly soft, but wow I'm just so dissappointed as I'm quite sure the beer is not going to get any hoppier.
I also tasted a slight "soapy" taste to the beer. This could be part of the beer being green, I can't be sure until I let it sit for a few more weeks. This may also have to do with excessive amounts of cascade hops, as I used it for all the amarillo in this recipe. I'm still researching the soapy taste.
