So, I bottled 6 days ago. I'm a little impatient, and want to see how my carbonation is going. What can I expect if I pop one open today? I haven't noticed any difference in the beer in the bottle, aside from the expected settling of the final sediment. By 'pop' I mean the 'spssss' sound when opening.
Further, if the cap pops when opened today, is it ready (obviously depends on testing and drinking it)? If not, how long until it's ready, given the pop and carb level after only 6 days?
EDIT1 Just put one in the fridge. Will report back in an hour on the status. Here's hoping I get at least a little carb :)
EDIT2 Just popped the test bottle. Got the pressure when popping the top, got a slight head. Feels half flat, as expected after only a week. Tastes amazing! This is my first bottle from my first batch. I think I did good, this is a very flavorful beer, good body, aroma, mouth feel. I'm proud to name it 'Frist'.
