Can base grain be bad?
 
1 Attachment(s)

This my second attempt with this grain, organic Gambrinus pale malt. The first batch with this grain turned out terrible. Undrinkable. Like it was infected. I've never had an infected batch. So this time, extra attention to sanitation. The picture is 7 days fermenting. It looks just like the first time. It looks like orange juice and super cloudy. I've also never had a beer this color. I did a 60 minute boil. So that should have killed anything up until that point. Can grain go bad and be unusable to brew with? I'm pi$$ed because this was a super hopped I.P.A. Waste off hops...Any thoughts on this?

Yep, bad grain. Tasted it tonight, same bad taste as the first time. Beware of organic Gambrieus pale malt. I'm dumping it. Glad I sampled before bottling. Super cloudy too. The picture is after one week in fermentation...
