Default odd taste on lighter brews

Tried a couple lower srm brews and seem to always get a protieny/trubey taste in their somewhere. Any ideas why?

Brews were batch sparged, mashout at 170F tops.

Same fermention procedures as my pale ales, ipa's etc.

Well it was only 1am here in BC but basically I contracted a virus that has been keeping me up! Nothing like getting sick in the summer during a heat wave.

Hard to say, but most of the ales I've had to filter were at the low end. Maybe they just lack enough other flavor notes to mask the off-flavors. I chill them well first & the filter seem to trap most of it.

Did you cold condition them? I'm in the habit of doing that now in the secondary whenever I have space in the fridge...definitely seems to result in a cleaner taste even for ales.

I've had a similar experience with my last two beers. I used yeast from a former beer (primary) for both of them. I was going to dump one out in fact, but I thought I'd try it again and it seems to be mellowing. Did you use fresh yeast, or cultivated yeast from another fermentation?

The only thing I can think is that for mine at least, the reused yeast gave it a stronger yeasty flavor somehow, and it took much more time to fully ferment.
