Hi all. This is thread is half question, half rant. I know the answer will most likely be "wait and see".
SWMBO wanted to help bottle my latest beer. It was an imperial brown that was bulk aged for 6 weeks then oaked for 6 days with bourbon soaked chips. Tasted great.
On bottling day, SWMBO misread the 1oz vanilla extract on my beersmith printout as 1 bottle (4oz). The beer now has a very off flavor. I've never tasted beer with an acetaldehyde problem, but it does have a similar green apple phenolic type taste. I cannot blame anything other than the vanilla extract for the issue because it tasted just fine before hand.
I know vanilla will mellow, but this much? I don't even taste vanilla at this point, just awfulness. This brings me back to the first time I saw my mom making cookies and saw vanilla extract and decided to take a big gulp.
I'm not even considering dumping it, just wondering.
Also, it has been 2.5 months since bottling.
