I bought a pony keg of Miller Lite (I know I know...I just didn't want to waste good homebrew on my friends that just wanted to get wasted) Super Bowl weekend, which was February 5th.
First off, I'm aware that this could be getting an off taste now because I've had it for 3 months. However, I was getting an off taste after about 1 month of having this keg. If it's any consolation, I have it in a kegerator and it is powered by Co2.
My issue is that it almost has a plastic or rubbery taste to it. I'm wondering if the beer was picking up flavor/smell from the beer line. I washed the beer line before I hooked up the keg with beer line cleaner, and the tap was also washed.
What do you guys think? I never had this issue with my homebrew, so maybe I should just chalk it up to being cheap beer? Could it be that my beer line and tap needs to be soaked in cleaner overnight or something just to be safe? I would greatly appreciate any thoughts on this. Thanks!!
