Brewed a cream ale from AHB. Full boil in a new aluminum pot. Pot carefully cooled in <30min in a big tub w/snow. 3wks in carboy, room temp in the dark. 2 wks bottle condition.
Bad bad cardboard taste. Almost undrinkable.
I've read all over this forum and Palmer on oxidation, and cant see where it would've happened. This flavor wont go away with more time in the bottle, right?
My concern is that it will happen again.
