Sorry Meehan, I beat ya to it. Thank you Adam for all the bottles. I assure you they will all be put to good use. Also, thanks for the sample of your brew, drank it as soon as I got home. It was great, definitely see a Nut Brown in my brewing future.

No problem. Rather see them go to a homebrewer than the landfill. Glad you liked it. Still a little young but really one of my favorites. I love brown ales. That one came out a little toastier than I anticipated but I really like it still.

Day 7 bottling.


Not going to lie, doesn't taste the greatest. I hope conditioning will bring out the flavor. Will know in a couple weeks!

Was it done fermenting? What do you mean by doesnt taste great? Anything in particular or just not great? Very few styles are great young and I know I haven't had anything I'd deam good after 7 days. What style was it again?

Coopers Draught. I forgot the reading but across days 5-7 it measured the same. Which told me it was done fermenting. I racked into the bottling bucket and bottled with coopers carb drops.

Now it's sitting in the bottles at 70 degrees for a couple weeks and ill try it again.

As far as the taste, it wasn't bad. Just flat and blah. I am guessing a typical light beer that has t aged or carbed yet.

Ah ok. Well I suppose if the readings were where they were supposed to be and stayed the same you won't make bottle bombs at least haha. That yeast continues to eat other "things" in the beer other than sugar as time goes on. These "things" are what attribute to some off favors and the "green" flavor of young beers. Also, the lighter the beer the easier it is to perceive any off flavors. Basically where I'm going is it will probably come out carbed in a few days but that bleh taste may stick around. Most beer, assuming its not contaminated will clean up and be much better with age. That's why they say the best homebrew is always the last homebrew!

I tried it a week ago and the Initial taste was good, but a strong almost sour like aftertaste. What I suppose you would call a green beer it has say for another week now and I put another in the fridge last night and will try again.

Ill report as soon as I find out
