I will be brewing a CDA today.  I just got done bottling a Belgian Wit and a Newcastle Clone.  I'm thinking of brewing a Porter next weekend.

I looked up the recipe as well and it seems an oz. of Cascade @  60 and an oz. of Fuggles in the last 2 minutes would hardly over bitter the beer. Kinda tough to pinpoint. Do you have a lot of yeast sediment in your bottles that may be making its way into your glass?

No, actually there is very little sediment in the bottles.

I just bought the book you mentioned from Amazon.  I will have to study it.  Thank you for all your help.  Hopefully the Porter I have in the secondary will be better.  I used the Activator for that one.

The thermometer sticker on the bucket read between 65-70 f.  I went with liquid yeast because of all the talk about it being superior to dry.  I mostly drink Newcastle, Dunkleweiss, Hefeweiss, mostly German beers due to my current location, Sam Adams, Guinness Draught(bottle or can), and any English Ale my buddies bring back from London.

I followed the Irish Red Ale kit from Midwest.

I just tasted my first batch of beer and it was pretty awful.  Super Bitter.  I used a kit from Midwest called Irish Red Ale.  I followed directions to a "T".  Primary Fermenter (bucket) - 7 days; Secondary Fermenter (Glass Carboy) - 7 days; Bottled using EZ-cap bottles and let sit at room temp for 2 weeks.  Average temp during fermentation and bottle condition was 65-70 f.  Should I dump it or wait another week.  Oh yeah, I used Wyeast Propagator.  No yeast starter due to me not really knowing anything about it.

O.K. I looked for this answer on the forum, but I couldn't find it.  So here it goes...This question seems really trivial but I don't want to waste anything.  I recently picked up equipment to brew 10 gallon batches.  Is it as simple as doubling everything in a 5 gallon recipe?  Including 2 packets of Wyeast Activator?  Any insight would be most helpful, Thanks.

Getting ready to start a Porter today.  My first one, fingers are crossed.

I know that Star San is a no rinse sanitizer. If I don't rinse off my bottles, will it effect the conditioning of my beer? Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
