Default Triple taste horrid

Brewed the ivan modified triple on 12-6-09
8.00 lb Pilsen Light Extract (DME)
0.25 lb Aromatic Malt (grain)
0.25 lb Cara-Pils (grain)
0.25 lb Munich Malt (grain)
2.00 lb Candi Sugar

1.50 oz Goldings, East Kent (45 min)
1.00 oz Hallertauer (15 min)

1.00 tsp Yeast Nutrient
2 Pkgs White Labs #WLP500

with an O.G. of 1.100. Did a late addition of most of the lme so as not to produce more un-fermentables. Fermentation went like normal. Transfered to tap and draft today(F.G. 1.020) and man it taste horrid. No sign of infection or any thing. Used spring water for the boil like normal. Taste was that of soap and bad wine. I know it is not much to go on but that all I got.

You sure it's ready to drink at this point? Not sure what the going theory is on DMS in pilsen extracts. I know there's an argument that much of it is driven out during the creation of the extract, but, I'm not sure about all of it. With a late addition on the extract, that would be one of my concerns. Not sure if that would result in a soapy flavor though. I've heard that high temps can sometimes result in that character and have seen mention of the same thing with EKG hops. Don't know, just throwing out ideas.

I put it in the TAD container to card and put it in the back of the closet to forget about for a while. Temps were kept at a solid 62-63 in a water bath. I have brewed 10 beers and none of them have tasted this bad out of the primary. Never thought of DMS with DME that may be it. Thanks for replying so quickly

Well, I couldn't say for sure if DMS would cause this type of flavor. I do believe that DMS can still be a concern with extracts and, I would think, a late addition might accentuate that. Could be it's just too young at this point. Maybe some more experienced tripel brewers have some ideas?

Well I have brewed three beers over 1.090 and none of them taste that bad out of the primary. I hope long term storage is the answer

This is an extremely light beer (in color and taste) for the amount of fermentables that are in it. This is one you need to age for a long period of time before the complex flavors and light body merge and create something wonderful. Put it aside for another three months at least and see if it's any better.

With Tripels we are talking months before they come into their own. We're not talking a few weeks here, more like 6-12 months before it is going to come into it's own.

Ok, thanks for all the advice. Will revisit the triple in about 3-6 months

yea phew.. that is a heavy bastard. That 2 pounds of candi sugar is most likely what affecting the taste the most, and the reason for letting that bad boy brew sit and condition for another 4 months :P...
