My goal was that it was drinkable. I can walk before I run...
What I did wrong:
1. I pitched the yeast while the wort was too hot
2. only fermented 1 week
3. FG was too high 1.025
But... like this forum taught me RDW so after 2 weeks in bottles I wanted to taste now to tell the difference after 3 weeks when I think it should be ready.
Tastes like a standard Amber Ale... supposed to be a porter though.
Drinkable enough I want to open another bottle or two... you know for comparison
I may give this hobby another 10-20 years and then reevaluate
