Not sure what you mean RIC, if your referring to the grolsch style top like I sent for the swap then that wasnt an issue with the comp because they got normal bottles with caps.

DId you use star san? I've had problems in the past with to much star san to water ratio, didnt rinse and got a matelic flavor. now I rinse and it's all ok.

A better thing to do would be to mix your Star San solution at the recommended concentration. At this strength it is entirely rinseless (with no off flavours) and it actually works better (according to Charlie Talley, the inventor).

I use the no rinse sanitizer that came with my kit but I mix it to the recommendations.

No I meant that if you sent the comp a normal bottle with the normal cap. I have had my caps rust on the inside while I was soaking them during bottling.

How old were the hops you used? I have a buddy that has had a slightly astringent, metallic flavor in the last two batches and I think the hops he is using are old

Do you bottle condition or keg? If you bottle from a keg, I really think oxygen has something to do with metallic flavors in roasty beers.

Did you use a yeast starter and if so, did it contain yeast nutrients? This guy says that amino acid-based yeast nutrients can contribute a metallic flavor...

Normal bottling.

No starter on that one.
