My Rye IPA: this is my 5th batch of beer. First one to turn out tasting so badly.
- 4 weeks in primary
- 6 weeks in secondary dry hopping
- 5 weeks in the bottle
is very nice and clear beer, and smells nice and hoppy as expected...but it tastes horrible! It is super bitter, and the aftertaste is a harsh stale dry cardboard. I can't get half a bottle drank before I just dump it.
I have been a bottle the past 3 weeks and it actually seems like it's getting worse. The carbonation is Ok, not a huge head but not out of the ordinary either.
it seems like oxidation might be a possible source. If so, can the "power of bottle conditioning" can fix this one? Am I past the point of no return? when do i call it quits and dump it? Love this forum. Thanks!
