Do you drink it from the bottle? My friend I give hombrews to just recently stopped drinking from the bottle and always complained of yeasty beer. Never made sense to me why he did this.

I think the problem lies with the length of primary. Yeasty smell/taste will occur if it goes WAYYY too long or too short. All the brews I make now are in primary for at least three weeks.

Also if you move the fermenter too close to bottling time. Might stir up the yeast

i think it was the wort chiller honestly . it was old and had been sitting in a attic for god knows how long, i got it from a friend. We used the hoses on the chiller they where pretty gross where it connected to the copper so i cut all of it back and cleaned it really well but i think it still contaminated the beer. We completely referbished the wort chiller so there should be no more problems.
