Posted in thread: Terrible tasting beer on 12-18-2013 at 05:46 PM
I made a Belgian Ale from an extract kit just over a year ago. My wife absolutely loves this
stuff and this just so happened to be the fourth time I’ve made this particular kit. So on the

You already know that fermentation started so I wouldn't worry about it at all. Let it be for a
week and check the gravity at that time.

Not only is my wife a beer drinker, she's also my harshest critic. "Well this tastes alright,
