I tried to do a search and didn't find the answer, so if it's a repeat thread I appologize. Link me to it if it exist already.
On to the question:
My first batch has been in the bottles for about 4 1/2 weeks now. I've been tasting one every few days just to see how it's coming along and to learn how beer ages. I'll admit, it's not the best beer I've had, but I consider it a sucess as it is my first beer and it is palattable (sp?). I had one last night and it tasted like all the rest I have had so far. They all seemed to be lacking enough carbonation (I used 1 cup of the bottling sugar when I bottled for a 5 gallon batch). I get home from work today and decide to crack one open and it was unbelievable the difference in the carbonation level from all the rest. It was just perfect and made it taste great. My question is whether one day can make that much of a difference or is it something else that causes different bottles to have different amounts of carbonation?
Thanks for the advice.
BTW, I love this board and am soaking up as much info as possible and plan to put it to good use when I start my second batch next week.
