Default Bottle my bear 2 days ago.

I had my brew in primary for 2 weeks... then racked to secondary for 3 weeks... and bottled two days ago....

It appears there is a white milky substance at the bottom of all my bottles. If I shake the bottle it disapates back into the beer.

What is this white substance? is it bad? it doesn't appear to be mold.

It's sediment. It means your beer is carbonating. It's a good thing. In a couple weeks, you can pop open your brew and enjoy!

ahh neat... i'm tempted to open just on up now... I've never tasted home brew before... that way I can see how the beer ages and tastes better as it stays in the bottles longer... should that be ok?

anyone who says they have never opened a beer after a couple days to see how it tastes is lying

It is just fine and something everyone does, especially with their first beer. It won't be carbonated and wont be nearly as good as several months from now but it wont hurt anything, go for it

I never did...I knew from reading to wait....

The problem with sneaking beers when you know they will be undercarbed and prolly still green, is that when the beer IS ready and you are enjoying it at it's peak, all those that you could be enjoying now you pissed down the toilet 3 weeks ago....

There is a saying, that the best bottle of beer is ALWAYS the last one in the batch....

????????????????????

I didn't say anything for you to get all defensive about....

In fact I wasn't even talking to you, I was responding to iamopie2's post....He can't claim it's something everybody does, or that those who say they don't are lying....honestly, a lot of people on here, who are new to brewing and have read stuff, do wait it out...they've read enough threads where many of us suggest that there's no point in wasting a beer after a few days in the bottle...
