Hello all,

First post..... Sorry for the length :)

I just bottled a black IPA that was about 9.3% ABV. It tasted awesome before going into the bottle. It also smelled amazing as I dry hopped it with 3oz of Simcoe, 3oz of Amarillo and 1oz of Warrior. I primed it with 3/4 cup of corn sugar etc.. Anyway why does it taste and smell so different after 2.5 weeks in the bottle? Does it take a while to get back to where it was? I know it should be about 4 weeks before its ready but it tasted and smelled great at bottling time.

Thanks to everyone for all the great info on this site.

Check out the thread under yours. Its Revvy's tips for the bottler, first time or otherwise.
