Default Can StarSan produce band-aid tastes?

I'm a bit worried. My latest brew might taste like band-aids and I'm thinking that it might be either from residual PBW or the StarSan.

It might just be because it's still young, but is it possible to have those compounds cause phenolic tastes?

I don't think so. the band-aid taste can come thru if you used bleach, but Starsan doesn't have chlorine in it. One time, I did not dilute the Starsan enough (too much drinking while bottling) and it had a a distinct burning type of smell (kind of like a cross between ammonia and sulfur) Did you use any adjuncts in the brew? Some spices can cause a mediciney taste.
