No, there isn't.







Seriously, this is almost an impossible question to answer. Are you getting some sort of undesirable aftertaste in your beers? If so, you'll need to describe it in order for anyone to be able to help identify it.

Generally aftertaste is referred to a taste that is not desired. Mostly I hear of aftertaste as a result of bad sanitation, too much table sugar or high sulphur from the yeast.

Common off-flavors that are listed in Palmer's How to Brew:

It's the combination of all the ingredientsand in what way they're used. Just hops alone you can get bitterness out of them as well as flavor and aroma, depending on the boil times. That's not counting conbinations of varieties.

Aftertaste is generally connotative of a negative thing. You might try checking the How To Brew site and look up "Finish".

Some amount of tannins are desirable. All beers are astringent to a point. If not, the taste would fall off the tongue and disapear very quickly, and leave no aftertaste. There is a fine balance between being noticable and just right. And aftertaste is desirable, but once again to a point. you don't want to over do it.
