mine tastes pretty terrible after a week and a day in the primary too. I was told by someone the other day that after 8 weeks of aging his batch was AMAZING. Unfortunately he drank his last bottle at that 8 week mark.
Currently my graff is very bitter with a slight sour apple taste at the finish. If I cool the sample down with some ice cubes the flavors blend a little bit better but its still not tasty. I plan on aging it for at least 3 weeks once the fermentation is finished. I'm at about 1.02 SG @ 74*F and the airlock has slowed considerably. Hopefully I can rack and keg and let it age sometime this weekend.
