Well, It's thanksgiving--and I just couldn't wait any longer, LMAO!
I made the midwest milk stout extract kit... looking for a flavorful dessert beer.
I just opened a PERFECTLY CARBONATED Bottle... to find a very bitter beer. It is pretty clear for a stout, and starts off w/ a dairy-like aroma, hits the pallet with a TON of bitterness--and finishes malty and sweet.
The malt keeps coming back to the pallet--somewhat chocolate milkish???
It makes me want to keep drinking it, but I wish the bitterness would smooth out a bit...
I brewed 3 weeks ago-- 2 weeks in primary, 1 week in bottles so far.
I FIGURE: Young beer
So, I'll continue to be patient. I left 2 gallons in primary for an additional week, I'll bottle that tomorrow... but after taking the gravity and tasting it today--I'm getting the same flavor profiles???
