My first 5g extract batch was an American Wheat. As an impatient noob I drank it all during weeks three and four of bottle conditioning. It was still a bit green, but it was MY first batch and I loved it. My second batch is a London Porter. Its been conditioning for six weeks now and it still has not carbed properly yet. Foams the whole glass when you pour it. Giant foam bubbles too. Sounds like rice crispies while it settles. It has aged long enough to taste great, its just under carbed at this point. NOTE TO NOOBS. If want to brew a porter (or any malty brew) wait until your pipe line is well established because it takes a long time to carb malty brews.

Now to the pointless point of this post. My third batch, an American Pale, has been conditioning for 18 days and its GREAT. No green taste and well carbed. Leaves nice lacing on Jet Dried glasses. Iíve had five tonight. I know I should leave them for a bit longer but itís the only drinkable homebrew in the house at the moment. Iím sure Iíll hate myself as I drink the last one which Iím sure will be ten time better than it is now.

Iím just supremely proud of my American Pale and wanted to share with someone who might case, as the wife only drinks cheap wine or Crown.. (I guess that the actual pointless point of this post.)

Hell no.....if it tastes that good drink it up!!!!

Also, on the wheat beer...I believe wheat beers are supposed to be drank quickly....dont let those set long.....drink them while fresh.

Also....kudos to your wife for being a CROWN drinker.....I;m not a whiskey drinker....but I am a CROWN drinker....

Keep on drinking it if it tastes good! I can't ever seem to let anything age too long either unless I've got a good 20g or so on hand, not counting on what happens to be in the keg at the time. Besides, the more you drink the more you get to brew - win, win!

When you said your wife was a Crown drinker I immediately thought you meant Crown Lager (a.k.a. "Crownie"), a beer I've only seen in Australia. Was going to ask where you got it state side.

It sounds like your only problem is volume. Crank up the volume.
Brew son, brew!

I've been doing pale ales from the get go. My latest,an APA I came up with,was fully carbed & conditioned in 8 days in the bottles. There's a couple of pics in my gallery. Bulk priming is def the way to go! It seems to carb/condition the beer faster/better than the cooper's carb drops I was using.
They're ok,don't get me wrong. But they take longer to work,& they over-carb eventually. I have a series of pics in my gallery that show this.
Anyway,congrats on the pale ale! I'm partial to them myself...

I have two 5g batches in primary now, but they will not be ready to bottle until July 1 at the earliest. I don't think my American Pale will last that long. However, when the 10g I have fermenting now is ready to drink I will have another 10g fermenting. At that point I think my pipeline will be flowing.

Second note to noobs: A single fermenting vessel is a novelty item. If you intend to drink only that which you brew, three fermenters are required. I only have two, but father's day is coming.

Very true on the second note to noobs. I have three counting my bottling bucket, but one is about to be used for lagering soon.
