    Had you given the one(s) you tried a few days to a week in the fridge before drinking?? A week,
    or more, in the fridge will absorb the CO2 into solution which makes for a nice creamy head,
    better rete...

    And as I'm learning, sometimes you have to keep waiting. My first batch should have been done a
    couple of weeks ago, but it's over-carbonated at the moment; tastes OK, but the feel is wrong.

    I just opened my first brew in 15 years or so just the other day (an American Amber), so I know

    Thanks, all... This was very helpful. This is one of those batches where it seemed like
    everything went wrong. I had my syphon too far down into the wort and clogged it with trub when
    I was transferri...

    I have a Brewers Best kit. It says in the instructions that you can rack to a secondary, but
