Default First Bottling Experience

I just bottled my first batch of all grain ( also my first batch ever). Just a quick question. It needs to condition in the bottle for a couple of weeks but it tasted quite sweet. Should this go away as it conditions?

Not necessarily, but need more info on your process and recipe. Are you sure it was done fermenting?

did you taste it after adding the priming sugar? was it at a stable FG before you added sugar? and yeah, generally 3 weeks at 70 degrees to condition, after that give 'em 3 or 4 days in the fridge so the co2 better dissolves into solution.

If it tasted sweet, it may not have been done. What were your gravity readings. Bottling a beer before it is finished is a sure way to end up with bottle bombs.

unfortunately my kit did not come with expected gravity readings or a hydrometer so I am kind of flying by the seat of my pants. I followed the instructions to a "T" and am hoping for the best. The kit is for small 1 gallon batches and I am looking forward to the next batch. I don't have much info on the recipe as it was part of the kit. If you want to check it out here is the link The Brewer's Market. All I know is that it is a wheat beer.
