I just started brewing in June I have 8 under my belt with 6 of those being all grain why wait i say. Well my beers are pretty good and i still cant wait to share them/drink them like i should but my question is i can taste the "grains" while drinking my beer. I dont mind it so much but just wondered if i did something wrong or just don't let them age like they should?

THanks

Are you getting grain into your wort while boiling? A bigger vourlauf might do the trick

You brewed 8 batches in less than a month and you are already drinking some of them?

Slow down! You need to let your beers age a bit...for one thing most beers need 3 weeks in the bottle to carb as it is...

If you just started in June how are you drinking them already? Even if you brewed one June 1st that one MIGHT be coming ready JUST NOW using the basic 123 rule

Seriously though lynwitte, how long are you letting your beers ferment? Are you using a hydrometer? Leaving a beer in primary for an additional 2-4 weeks is a really good idea, it makes for great beers (except for hefe's and wits.)

What types of beers are you making?
