Mr. Beer, first batch - The Outcome

I unintentionally created a light beer. Or rather, something that tastes remarkably similar to light beer. Something that tastes almost exactly the polar opposite of how it was meant to taste. Which is to say, I like dark beer. This, this is not dark beer. This is kind of a watery tasting beverage with a slight molassesy beer after-taste.

Don't get me wrong, it's not bad, it's just not good. It was well carbonated, though, so that was good.

Oh well, I drank this one after one week of fermentation, one week of carbonation, and two hours of chilling in the fridge. Maybe I will let the twelve 22oz bottles I have left of it condition in the fridge for a couple of weeks and see if it helps the taste at all.

In any case, I now have one batch of Blueberry beer and one batch of Raspberry Wheat beer fermenting, so I will see how those turn out before I give up.
