Probably lots of variables, and even lots of differences between homebrewers' experiences. That particular one I attributed to pitching hot - I mean like 80 - but who knows, I've never tried it again. I know I'm more sensitive to those flavors than some of my friends so that's part of it. You should be able to find the sweet spot for you with some experimentation.

I have to say the only time I ever experienced any band aid flavor was my first batch. It was due to chloramine remaining in my brew water.
