I brewed the well published PtE two weeks ago, and overall went well. Prior to going into the secondary, it was at 1.011 and tasted great, although quite bitter (to be expected). Just sampled it after 8-9 days of dryhyopping (prior to adding the last 0.25 oz of each of the 3 hops), and it is EXTREMELY grassy. Certainly undrinkable at this point.
Is this typical? I know it will mellow a *little* with age, but with this recipe, I was under the impression that it should taste pretty good almost immediately.
Has anyone else experienced this?
