comment Variable carbonation
I bottled just under two weeks ago, and they have been sitting at about 65 degrees since. No real drafts or fluctuations. I haven't found any to be under-carbonated yet.

I'll have to try that approach next time, I've got plenty of ideas brewing as to how to improve my process. And my puns. They're in the fridge now, for safety's sake.

comment Combating Diacetyl
I had several of my beers last night, and got only the faintest 'twang'. Is this something that should decrease with age? It's also possible I was just too critical with the first couple bottles.

Thanks for the solid advice. The brew is drinkable, some find the flavor almost unnoticeable, but I'm not terribly fond of it.

comment Combating Diacetyl
Thanks. I'll post my recipe soon, but I think you're probably right. Diacetyl was the closest flavor I found mentioned, but the flavor is also very reminiscent of my extract's aroma. As for racking, my father (also a brewer) never racks and found the notion odd. I however was adamant about following the recipe sheet provided by my LHBS, which recommended racking to a secondary at around six days.
