comment Why does my beer have a separate water aftertaste?
OK, full boil rules that out. But I don't know how taking the fermenting beer in a car would make any difference to your situation. I basically agree with Tobias. The beer wasn't done fermenting.

BTW, if the beer got more carbonated over time, likely it wasn't done fermenting when you bottled or you had an infection.

comment Why does my beer have a separate water aftertaste?
Did you do a partial boil and top off? If so, you likely got an inaccurate OG due to incomplete mixing of top off water and wort. When you make an extract kit and get the proper volumes, you pretty much HAVE to get to correct OG, no matter what you measure. It happened to me dozens of times when I started brewing. I think the "water" taste me be in your head since you think the beer is too low in alcohol.

comment “White wheat” vs “wheat malt” vs “flaked wheat”?
I would clarify that malted wheat has diastatic power. Wheat berries and flaked wheat do not and require mashing with diastatic malts for conversion.

comment Effect of priming with honey
That's certainly what I'd do. And FWIW, table sugar works just as well as corn sugar for priming.

If you keep the tank outside, there's more room for beer inside!

comment Kegging vs. Bottling (force-carbonated), what's the difference in taste?
Agreed, but the answer was general, not specific to the question. That was why I downvoted.

comment Kegging vs. Bottling (force-carbonated), what's the difference in taste?
I had to downvote becasue of you do it properly there should be no difference in CO2 between keg and bottle.
