Ok, so I tasted my 1st couple beers from my first batch after 2 weeks of bottle carbing. It was over carbed and acidic/alcohol tasting and doesn’t taste much like a brown that I’ve tasted before.
I used Walmart’s bottled drinking water for the brew. I steeped the grains for 30 mins around 160 degrees and when I primed the batch, I used the full 5 oz bag of Brewers Best priming sugar for the 5 gallon batch.
Did I use too much priming sugar? If so, what is/are the guidelines for the amount of corn sugar to use? I do have a scale that measures in ounces. Would using this water cause off flavors or would the faulty taste be solely from overcarbing or is it possible that I extracted the tannins while steeping?
It isn’t horrible tasting but I am kind of bummed that it isn’t great.
