Default Bottle carbing and acetaldehyde

Hello all,

Had a 5 gal scottish -80 ferment in the primary for 3 weeks. Tasted great, and no green at all (1.044 OG, 1.010 FG). I batch primed with 3.8oz corn sugar and bottled. After 4 days, the bottles had successfully carbed, but I now taste a pronounced acetaldehyde and green beer flavor. The off flavors are similar to what is characteristic in a high sugar belgian.

Question: is this just the carb sugar fermentation needing to be cleaned up? Is there another priming sugar I can use in the future that can reduce the acetaldehyde? Does DME carbing taste any different?

Thanks for your input!

Hello,

maybe the undesired taste is acetaldehyde due to the low time in bottle. Wonder how your beer taste now... Does it taste better?

Cheers!
