I took a sneak peak sip while bottling and it tasted like" Satan's Anus." How close will this taste resemble my beer a month from now?

I'm hoping that bottle conditioning will dramatically change the taste of my very first brew...

Generally speaking the beer can change quite a bit from bottling day. It would be more helpful if you described what Satan's Anus actually tastes like, that way we could better decern if the problem is a) just needs time to mellow b) you brewed a style you don't like or c) there is something legitimately wrong with your beer.

Big differences. The progression is usually Satan's anus, then Satan's balls, then Satan's armpit, then Santa's armpit, and then, finally Santa's lips.

Tasting Satan's anus induces a strong urge to vomit and most definitely forces one to immediately spit out and spray the immediate vicinity with Satan's anal liquor. After you have tasted Satan's anus and sprayed your brew area, you will be screaming and crying like a dazed maniac. Also a strong dose of Satan's anus can cause bleeding from the nose.

If this happened to you, your beer tastes like Satan's anus, and you should dump it. Else, you will likely be fine, bottle it and let it age. Green beer tastes funny to those who have not sampled it before. With experience, you will be able to taste the hydro samples and get a good feel for what your beer will become.

Cheers to Satan's Anal Liquor

Now guys here have my kind of humor! LOL

As was said - the aged beer will change significantly after conditioning. Unfortunately, my brew tastes best right out of the fermenter and goes downhill from there. I actually like the taste of green beer I guess.

Don't be surprised if the brew that bakes you vomit midget fingers when you taste it at bottling time is the best beer you've ever tasted in about 6 or 8 weeks!

Thanks for the detailed and humorous responses! My description of Beelzebub's anal juices is as follows at the time of my bottleing:

Watered down, very little taste, and the dreaded "wet cardboard" taste.


I feel like my major error was oxygenating the beer at the beginning of the second fermentation.

I moved my glass carboy to the basement after the racking process, and was sloshing it all over the place on the way down the stairs. I didn't know this was a no-no until later.

Has this caused the fiery liquid of satanic anal fissures to fill my bottles?

Well, "wet cardboard" taste usually doesn't improve, but it's really too early to consider that it might be oxidation. Oxidation does taste like wet cardboard, but generally takes a while to develop. Moving it around (as long as it's under airlock) doesn't usually cause aeration.

There are exceptions, but in my ecperience a pre-bottling sample is pretty close to what you're going to get when it's done, sans the bubbles.
