tasted beer 1 week after bottling and it wasnt very good.
Seemed to have a very high diacetyl aroma.
After 2 weeks in fridge diacetyl aroma and taste are gone
and the resulting beer is great.
Munich and chocolate give this beer a great malty taste
all the way through.
Was hoping for a lower final gravity but the local homebrew
shop doesn't give you a choice in DME.
They just tell me it's "domestic"
