Mine has been bottled for 3 weeks now, and I have had mixed results. I put a few beers in the fridge for about 10 hours...the first one tasted great. The second & 3rd beer didn't taste that good, it had a beer flavor, as well as a nut flavor, but also had kind of an off, strong alcohol flavor which over powers the beer/nut flavor.

What would be the cause of that off flavor? Did I not cold crash my beer long enough before drinking it? Or do I just need to let it continue to condition for a few more weeks, before putting anymore in the fridge?

After letting it condition about a total of 6 weeks in the bottle, the sharp alcohol taste has started to mellow out, and has turned out to be pretty good tasting beer.

Yeah, i'm pretty happy with how mine turned out. I didn't have any sharp alcohol flavors, but i was disappointed in the carbonation levels early on. The last couple I tried were better...that and I was a little less careful about how i poured them. I'm careful not to include the sediment at the bottom, but pouring from a little higher above the glass creates a nice head.
