Well, what was your recipe? How much water did you use?

Also, how long has it been since bottling?

Maybe I missed something? Either way, the reason he's asking how long since bottling is because, my understanding and experience thus far, has been that green beer has an "empty" or "watery" flavor to it. If this flavor is coming from the hydrometer sample then it's not uncommon. If it's coming after 3 or 4 weeks of bottle conditioning then I'm guessing it's something related to the recipe.
