So my first batch has been sitting in the bottles for exactly seven days. Taunting me. I couldn't help myself. I popped one open.
Not enough carbonation, an aftertaste that I can't place... At least I know what green beer tastes like now so I can troubleshoot future brews. I think I'll pop one more at 2 weeks, and then three. All for "science" of course.
But hot-damn, I made beer!!!
