I finally got to try my first batch of home brew. It is a west coast pale ale with the Mr. Beer kit. After cracking open the first bottle i noticed that it had little too no head after pouring into a glass, and a seltzer water taste to it. I let it ferment for 2 weeks at around 66° F. and primed the bottles with the specified amount of regular table sugar and let them sit for 1 week at around 66° as well. And then cold conditioned the beer in a mini frig for two weeks. At the bottom of the empty bottle was a deposit of sugar. Does the sugar normally settle out during carbonation in the bottles or should it be fully dissolved?
