Nice walk through. Sounds like your brew day went like clockwork. Will be brewing a 5 gal AG batch of this soon.

Was the secondary after 2 days or 4 days?

I just kegged this a few days back. It's the first time I've brewed a lighter beer. It sat in primary for 3 weeks. It was force carbed at 30PSI for 36 hours. Normally I don't touch a beer for at least 2 months, but I hooked up a picnic tap last night to check the carbonation and poured myself a glass.

It was good, but I got a distinct after taste. The first perception was a slight saltiness, but I realized it was actually residual bitterness. It wasn't unpleasant, just unexpected. I haven't had a lot of Blonde Ales so I'm not sure whether this is normal. This is the first time I've force carbed as well, so it may be due to that.

Has anyone else experienced this? Is it just young beer or CO2? Will the flavor mellow out over time?

B- boy its most likely from the force carbing. In my experience it will mellow in 1-2 days

Brewed this a month ago and really enjoying it. I'd call it a light fizzy beer with more malt complexity and hop flavor than BCM.

10 gallons brewed yesterday...notty is being a slow but looks to be picking up. I am going to try hop half of my recipe with .5 oz of each cascade and cent. Probably try to leave it in primary for two weeks with maybe the last 3-4 days being used for the dry hop, then off to kegs!
