Eh, from the Homebrewing Wiki:

"Dimethyl sulfide (DMS) is an organic sulfur compound present above its flavor threshold in most beers. Because of its low flavor threshold, 10 - 150 ppb, it is a primary flavor and aroma compound that makes a significant contribution to beer character, especially in lager beers. It has a characteristic taste and aroma of cooked corn or creamed corn. "

Corn is exactly what it tastes like.

I stand corrected although i think it tastes much more like cabbage than corn.

Ive used pilsner extract and mashed with it a few times all i kept thinking was potatoes with the aroma in the boil and even a hint of it in the final taste.
How long did you mash?

IBUs measured approx. 32. Probably a little high but no off flavors stood out.

Just because I don't post to this forum often doesn't mean I don't know what I'm talking about.

DMS is known for its corn like flavor.

Nice to see you backtrack ..

Why is it that so many homebrewers are douchebags?
