I would really like to know how this happened. Although it's never happened to me homebrewing, New Holland's beers always have this effect. I always wondered why it would happen. Sorry for your bad experience

I was going to bottle up our batch last night, only to realize I didn't have enough bottles!!!!!!!

Try hooking up a plastic picnic tap and drawing a sample. Sometimes if I'm not on top of cleaning my SS taps, the gunk that builds up inside can absorb and pass on a metallic taste.

Metallic taste is not part of the flavor evolution of this beer. But in many cases (for me) when I have that taste in any beer, it seems to fade with time, unless it was caused by a yeast mutation.

I've had this on my list for a long time, and I have just enough leftover grain and cascade to pull it off. However I don't have crystal 10, just 40.

Should I use it in replacement, or use only a little and replace the rest with 2-row?

I think that Munich 10 would be a better sub than C40. The crystal malt helps to add body to this otherwise low gravity beer.

Isn't that what the cara-pills is for? Sure crystal adds body, but more of a caramel flavor and sweetness. All out of munich 10 anyway. Just have c40 and some amber malt.

I did the sub for C40 in BeerSmith and the color will still be within style for a blonde ale. I say go for it, you might get more caramel flavor, but you have everything on hand.

Made this yesterday and accidentally put in twice the amount of hops that was called for, b@lls! I think I just turned this into a pale ale? Its all good though I love me some centennial hops.

My girlfriend and I brewed the extract version today with some coriander and orange zest (thanks carolinabrewer). We're going to crack the first one open for Thanksgiving, can't wait!
