Promise us you'll try a couple more batches before even forming an opinion. You've learned a lot right now, likely more than you think. Nature does the heavy lifting, and if you keep things truly clean and sanitary, give the yeast a cool, dark place to work, and allow enough time for everything to finish, you'll surpass your fondest dreams.And you're already in a position to help others. You can report back when you've tried it, letting us know how it tastes. Folks here can help you connect cause with effect, and you'll start to get a feel for what's important and what's not. And don't even get me started on how much fun you'll have.
