A couple of my buddies got me a kit for my wedding in the fall. The beer included was a Shiner Bock clone from AHS. I was a little worried since it comes with lager yeast and I had to ferment it at room temperature. The directions said to let it sit in the bottles for 4 weeks. Yesterday was just over two weeks, but I was getting impatient.

The beer tastes a little harsher (for lack of a better word) on your first sip, but other than that, it tastes like Shiner to me. I'm wondering if it won't mellow a bit after another two weeks.

Either way, I'm pretty happy with how it came out, I had an irrational worry that it was going to come out undrinkable.

Yeah, it'll mellow in a couple of weeks. Welcome to the obsession!

It will be good in another 2 weeks or so. It will be GREAT in a few months, so make yourself save a six pack.

Will do. I just have to keep my friends from drinking all my brew now.
