Hi guys, I’m new (please be nice!
I tried my making my 1st brew that wasn’t from a complete kit and have a quick question about its sweetness.
Due to a very slight leak on my barrel I decided to pour off half a pint to release some pressure. It had been in there for exactly a week. Obviously I didn’t want to throw the half pint away so I tasted it!
There beer tasted good but was a little too sweet. I’m wondering if this is normal for a week in the barrel (it had 2 weeks in the fermenting bucket) or have I barrelled it too early?
There was good carbonation and a good head on the glass I poured.
I made 20 litres
1.5kg Amber liquid malt extract 1kg spray dried light malt extract 500g pale malt 500g Vienna malt Mountains premium gold yeast packet Wort was well aireated Fermented at 20 deg C
I didn’t take an OG (forgot!) But final gravity was 1.013
Primed with normal cane sugar
Will the sweetness go with time?
