I started my first batch on Feb 25th and it's been in the bottles for a week already. I tasted a bottle tonight and it seemed ok, but not quite as I was expecting. I know that I should have it sit in the bottles for another week (according to the recipe) but it just seemed off. I wonder if I didn't sterilize everything well enough. It does seem to have a sharp, biting kind of taste to it. And I have a question about the difference between a hoppy flavor and a malty flavor. I'm sure I can tell the difference, but I'd just like to be sure. I think this has a hoppy taste and I enjoy it, but I'd like to know for future batchs.
