I bottled my WH Ale on 11/11/12. I just cracked one open after letting it sit in the fridge for couple days, and I can't say I'm very pleased. And yes, I realize that at 3 weeks it can still be considered green, but it's got a bitter taste that my tongue can't reconcile. I think it might the gypsum. This is the first recipe I've done using gypsum, and I put the stated 2 tbsp. of it in. Having tasted this I now think that's too much for not only a partial boil (which I did), but perhaps also my local NoVA tapwater profile. (It was after this brew that I began experimenting with bottled water to improve tastes).
All in all, it's not particularly pleasant to drink. I'm half tempted to throw it all out, but then the rational part of me kicks in and says to keep it and check back on it in a few weeks. Only time will tell if it gets any better.
So much for blindly following a recipe...
Guess it's all part of the learning process, though.
