I added 1/2 gallon of sterilized water to it. It was probably not enough. Some beer was left over, and since this is a stout, I guess that's why it's dark.

Did I manage to get just trub here, and no yeast at all?

It's been in the fridge for a day now, and...

You probably haven't done anything wrong.
IPA's are supposed to be bitter.

I've done this kit once, and experienced the beer to taste "green" the first couple of weeks.

After about 3-4 weeks...

Burned, bitter taste

Hi!

I've done Coopers Brewmaster Pilsner a couple of times now.
It has turned out great, though it needed some time maturing. After about 3-4 months it was very good.

My last brew of this...

Did I just make a huge beginners mistake?

The bottles I use have not been used for bottle conditioning, but they have had beer in them.
I soaked them in hot water (also had hot water in the...
