So my second batch ever was an ipa about 3 months ago, I bottled it after 2 weeks and there was still a lot of suspendedmatter, and when I cracked the first one it tasted cidery and had a growing head/foam issue!

So I dummped it all....

Went to my inlaws and low and behold my fatherIL still had 3 bottles, this is at LEAST 2 moths since dumping... So I tried one for giggles.. It was fine, the yeast had taken its time but eventually they got the job done, so as every one says

Coming up: IPA
Fermenting: NADA grrrrr....
Bottles: American Amber, ESB, Pilsner, Choc Stout, Boch

Thanks for sharing that hard-way lesson.

Of course, I'm still sitting on a batch of mild from July; I jacked with Jamil's recipe and made something undrinkable. Not an execution/sanitation problem, just a jacked up recipe design on my part. I keep hoping it'll improve but it hasn't happened yet.
