My Pale Ale tastes kind of like soap.
The new Pale Ale I brewed tastes almost like soap, granted, the best soap I've ever tasted but still...
I had an amber ale that tasted a bit like soap too, not as much, but they both had cascade hops, so its either the hops, or my technique. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Heres a recipe:
7 # Light LME
1 # crystal 70
1oz Amarillo (8.2% a.a.) 60 min
1oz Cascade (8% a.a.) 30 min
