So I have 6 batches under my belt now. All PM. My 4th, I recently bottled and had a sample of 4 days into bottle conditioning.
Well, to my suprise, I tasted alcoholic bubblegum. Yup, it was nasty. Now I have read plenty of posts here about that off flavor, and I have already identified the culprit as high fermentation temps.
Thus my newly built fermentation chamber for batches 5 and 6, which smell/taste much better.
I have also read that those who have the off flavors that I have described, cellar that beer for 6 months and it turns out great. I will most certainly do this, as I will never ever dump a batch.
I am just mainly looking for reassurance, and support. I don't want to lose a batch to some novice mistake
