The local HBSS was out of the correct grains and I forgot to write down what he gave me and also its supposed to be a half pound less extract(recipe adjusted) but I had the extra and figured more ABV cant hurt. So it sat in the fermenter for 4 weeks at 65-69 degrees. I bottled it at 4 weeks and naturally tasted some, it had a good nose that quickly gave way to an overpowering rotten fruit flavor. I bottled it, a bit disapointed but knowing it probably would fix itself with age but I bottled a few small bottles as a test to see if it is getting better or if I should try the batch over again.
So tonight at week one, I know im kind of impatient but I want to get another brew rolling this weekend and this decides what I brew...I cracked one open, it tasted slightly better hell it even reminded me of the Sam Adams but still gave way to the "rotten fruit" flavor.
Another beer I brewed(canned mexican cerveza) had the same flavor but not as bad so we drank it all. So any ideas on what this flavor is? I read it may be oxidation?
Thanks for the replys
