It's been two weeks (3 total) and I'm happy to report that the beer is now delicious. The malty/wort flavor has subsided, the hops have come to life, and all is right in my beer universe.

SNPA clone a bit malty

First, I'll just say to any new brewers that my first batch, the Midwest Irish Red, tastes soooo much better after 6 weeks aging than 3 weeks. Try not to drink your whole batch after...

kidding! Actually, as a NE fan I was SUPER impressed with Flacco in their playoff loss to us. I think he's way underrated.
