Awesome! Should be fine! Was the gravity stable, and how did it taste?

Gravity was stable which was good. Has a fair while to do its thing. Taste was a little sweet but it seemed like it will be good once bottled.

One quick thing, the bottles have got a layer of yeast or sugar at the bottom after a week. Do I leave them alone or should I give them a turn to get the mixed up?

No, leave it, and in fact, if you let it cold condition after it's carbonated, it may compact down more and stay caked on the bottom when you decant. Nice to get as much clear beer out before the yeast is disturbed.

A little premature but after 8 days it is almost clear but tastes very good.

Like my first brew it tastes quite malty, is that just par for the cause with extract brewing or have I balanced it wrong?

Love the amber color and if its malty thats not too bad. If you want a little more of a hop character add a touch more hops during your late additions!

Started tucking into the beer. It tastes good, hoppy and similar to what I was aiming for. There isn't a lot of carbonation which is a real shame. More sugar needed at bottling next time!

Just curious as to how much priming sugar you used. I had a batch that took a full month to reach a real good carb level. I use 4.5 oz. of dry corn sugar for a 5 gal. batch.

I've used 5oz for 5 gallon batches. Great carb in oatmeal stout, hardly any in pumpkin ale.
