Can't wait for next weekend so I can finally pop a couple carbed bottles. It is Awesome!
I tried some of my sample as well at bottling. Ive never had a good experience with samples. My pumpkin tasted actually kind of bitter, and I didn't get any spice until more of an after taste.
My carbed/fridges beers always taste better than my samples, but I'm always getting a more bitter taste with my samples than the bottled version turns out to be.
No idea why.
I hope my batch turns out well. I wasnt entirely blown away by my sample... Everything was dead on just about (1.051 to 1.014), boil was right on, hops. But like I said, my samples are always more bitter for some reason
