I recieved a Mr Beer kit as a present which I am planning on upgrading very soon. I am brewing a Red Ale. After a week in the primary I tasted it and it tasted like a$$. I tasted a little sour and not much like beer. You can def. taste the alcohol. The color was a weird light, milky, brown color. I left it in the primary for two weeks and it has been bottled for a week now. I figured I would keep the process going and not just dump it. Any suggestions? Also in the directions I have, older kit, it doesn't say to boil the beer extract. It says boil water, take it off the heat and mix the extract then pour into primary. Did this totally screw up my brew with nasties? When I did this I was just following directions and knew close to nothing about brewing.
