This is do up for my second brew. Hoping to make something my wife and friends will drink. They're all light beer drinkers...

Let me know how yours comes out. I drank one today and after it was chilled overnight in the fridge it was a decent bit better. the lady is already tainted on it though so she doesn't taste a difference. Meanwhile I sampled my 2 other beers I have fermenting right now, one @ 3 weeks the other at 2 weeks. Planning a bottle day tomorrow for one of em.

Cheers

Looks good. How is that flavor coming along?

that one was chilled in the fridge for a couple days before drinking. Flavor is ok, I still taste that kind of "green beer" after taste, sorta apple-y and it's most noticeable after taking a drink a few seconds after finishing. It's also most noticeable on the middle/middle back of my tongue (if that makes sense)

It's hard for me to describe the flavor because it's not like "sour" like if you took a sip of lemon juice or anything like that. It's kind of like the after taste you get when drinking apple juice.

EDIT: you can kind of almost "smell" that flavor too when you smell the beer.

When I saw it was a "Summer ale" I was going to ask if it was a wheat beer. After you posted your grain bill I can see there was only a lb of wheat in there so am not sure how applicable my original thoughts would be now. Reason I was going to ask if it was a wheat was that the ones I've made have tended to exhibit a slightly tart flavour, as part of the overall flavour package. Sounds like it's coming along and maturing quite well, though.

I wish I could taste it and give you my opinion. I still think that another week in the bottles will take care of it, though. It does sound like "young" beer to me.

Thats an interesting point ogri as I wasn't aware wheat carried any tart flavor with it. Good to know. What if, say, the wheat wasn't boiled more than say, 10 minutes?

I hear you. I wish I had some people in the area to taste it for me (or develop a way to send taste across the interwebz, lol) to help troubleshoot. It just seems odd to me (being fairly new yet) that the young flavor would be so obvious after 4 or so weeks in bottle.
