So I just cracked open a bottle after a week carbing (early I know but who could resist). It taste great, a little sweat but I was impressed. The mouth feel is something I cant quite put a finger on though. I get that muccasy feel in your mouth after drinking orange juice. Has anyone ever experienced anythinng like this before?
It could be because there is still sugar left in the beer from priming, it needs to ferment out to carbonate your beer. Another week will hopefully get rid of that. Good to know it tastes good though, thats the most important part.
It should change quite a bit in the next few weeks, for the better! It's hard to tell when it's young what the final characteristics will be.
If you used good brewing techniques, had good temperature control, pitched good yeast, and used quality ingredients, those are all important factors even beyond the actual recipe. Each brew is a learning experience!
