I have been brewing for about a year, have been kegging everything, now i
have bottled my first batch, used dextrose to carbonate in bottles,,
everything is fine except  the beer is a bit sweeter tasting. Is there
anything i can do to have it come out not so sweet? Maybe a diffrent Yeast?
TIA

How long has the beer been in bottles? It might be that the yeast
hasn't had
enough time to ferment all the priming sugar. Wait for a week and taste
again
after that, and remember to keep the bottles in a temperature where the

yeast can work (not too cold).

That's probably the reason then. My last batch actually took three
weeks to
carbonate. I tasted it for the first time after two weeks but it was
sweet and
not fully carbonated. So I left it for another week, and after that it
tasted
just
as it was supposed to.
