comment Will a wheat beer taste watery before carbonation?
Thanks! By watery, yes -- lacking in body. When you explain it in terms of FG, though -- I suppose it makes sense -- it's not too far off from water :). I'll see how this one turns out in a few weeks, take notes, and plan accordingly next time. Thanks!

@mdma - Actually, I did weigh out the yeast (we have a nice digital scale sensitive to 1g), so I am sure about that part. Since I have a "taped to the can" fresh yeast packet with the kit I just got, I'll use that this time as my back-up -- and will try the suggestion of proofing the yeast. Next time I order a kit will get a few extra sachets! Lesson learned!

comment Once a beer is carbonated in the bottle, are there any benefits to aging it?
I'm in Japan - everything is smaller here -- Try 10L :P but point taken!

Interesting -- particularly when experimenting with outside flavors in secondary this seems to be the case.

Thanks for the info inre: OG as well -- that's a helpful guideline to follow. But I think I have this website's blessing now - time to pop one open! This isn't a particularly big beer at all, so now is the time to try it I reckon.

comment Should I boil a hopped malt extract prior to fermentation?
@Graham, thanks! Wort is in the fermentor at 30 degrees C, yeast is pitched, and I need a beer.Hope it goes well, I'm sure I'll be asking more questions, and someday, answering them, on this site :).
