I made a coopers classic IPA beer kit with a hop tea (about 5min boil), tin of light malt extract and 500g of light spray malt. I forgot to add water to the airlock in the first 4 days of fermentation (hoping that was ok though, it was inside and the kit yeast looked pretty happy after hydrating it). Fermentation was kept stable at about 19 degrees Celsius.
Anyway, I just tasted the beer going into the keg and it tasted surprisingly bitter, couldn't taste much else. Wondering if the best shot at mellowing it out would be to let it rest at room temperature, or if it's better to let it mature while chilled and carbonated?
