I concur on the bitterness. A couple weeks after racking the bitter aftertaste was really off-putting. Now after about five weeks in the carboy it's still there but much better. I expect a couple...

Gravity finally down to 1.012 so should be ready for the bottle any time. The taste has really mellowed out now with the harsh aftertaste all but gone. Going to put some fresh vanilla bean in and...

I'm curious to hear how this turned out. I just did a batch with maple syrup and worry I don't have enough maple flavor. I used 7 lbs malt extract with 1 lb of syrup. I'm going to taste at racking...

An update: the chiller worked great! Cooled an entire kettle (1/2 of our full-batch boil) in 10 minutes. Probably helped that it was done outside and it was 0 deg C. :)

Thanks so much for the detailed response. You are right--we're now 3 weeks after bottling and all sizes are much better. Glad this particular problem's solution involves me doing nothing. :)

Bottle Fermentation Mystery

I recently switched from partial mash to all-grain which has been a success (mostly because the beer is even more delicious).
