I have a couple of brews under my belt now and it seems they have all gotten better over time. My last IPA didn't start tasting really good until four weeks after bottling. Patience is a good virtue when brewing beer.

Whoa, I brewed the same beer on the 6th, bottled the 20th. I'm not getting any off flavors. I tried one on Christmas, it was fantastic. Malty flavor with subtle hops flavor to balance. Very smooth, delicious ale, but I'm going to let them be in the bottles for 2 weeks after bottling. I hope time fixes that off flavor. Enjoy!

I did the same brew with the same off taste...been bottled 3 weeks now and if anything the off taste is getting stronger. Hard to say what it is, it just isnt quite right. Im hoping time fixes it as well.

I brewed my first beer on 11/10/10. 12 days in Primary and bottled immediately after. It's flavor profile changes almost daily honestly. It gets better by the day.

This will be my first beer. Got it with my equipment for Christmas. What yeast are you using? I was planning to leave mine in the fermenting bucket for 3 weeks and then bottle since I don't have a secondary. I just have the dry yeast.
