I realize that this topic gets debated endlessly, so I apologize for creating another.
I've made two AG wheat ales in the last 6 months and both had a metallic taste. I've made several beers before, between and since that have NOT had this issue so I don't believe it's my equipment or water. I also don't believe it's oxidation because again, my process hasn't changed.
The only uniquely common factors with these two brews is that the mash was mostly pale/pilsner & wheat. The hops were completely different and one batch included lemon & honey. I wonder if the culprit is WAY too much primer sugar for bottling. Due to the fact that I have no scale and the LHBS mislabeled the package it took awhile to realize my mistake. So, can ~16 oz. of primer sugar in a 5.5 gallon batch create a metallic taste?
