My first brew attempt was a basic beer recipe kit provided by the LHBS.
1/2 lbs Crystal Malt
6.6 lbs Light LME
3 oz. hop pellets (can't remember name while at work)
Partial boil on my electric stove(boy that took forever).
I followed the instructions, and fermented for 4 days, then racked to seconday for 7 days, hyd. reading was constant, so I bottled.
@ 2 weeks later, I cracked the first one open, and Wa-hoo, it was pretty good.
BUT after 2-3 of them, I notice it has a slightly sweet taste, and is not very hoppy.
Good amber color and decent head, but the sweetness bothers me.
Any thoughts on the root cause of the sweetness?
