So just opened my first bottle of my first ever brew. I did a porter w/ cold coffee extract and vanilla infusion during secondary. Opened this a couple days early just to see what was in store.
Carbonation was just right. No sediment. Did notice one thing though. A lot of microbrews I taste, have a "soap like" aftertaste. Mine has this as well. Any thoughts on what caused this or what I can do to produce smoother brews in the future? Thanks as always and happy brewing!
You should have a set of BEER glasses that are used for nothing else. That's what my German born Papa always said. Of course that was before we had a dishwasher! But I still have my heavy glass mugs that stay in the fridg and really keep the beer cold while I drink it.
Well, the majority are brew pub beers, not necessarily commercial breweries. As for the other comments, I don't think it's my glassware. I think I'll wait another few days to see if the flavor changes.
