Give it some time - mine had this really off-tasting melon flavor that is now completely gone after 2-3 weeks in the keg. I hated the flavor and thought it was the worst I had brewed so far in the past 3 years. Time did wonders though and I now enjoy it very much. Some long time drinkers of my beer have said this is their favorite to date.

Soapy - Dude that's too bad.

I suppose you don't have extra kegs so you can let this keg sit out of the rotation for a while?

I do and maybe a couple of weeks in the ferm. fridge at 40 will salvage it.

I monkeyed around with the hop additions and did a fwh along with a 30 minute addition. If I have to dump this one, I'll try again and stick to the recipe in this thread.

Any thoughts on using WLP001 on a TH Clone? It's clean and a little higher attenuating.

how many days do you let it ferment before adding the dry hops in?

Brewed this yesterday. The only problem I had was that I planned for 75% efficiency hit 70%. OG was 1.061.

Brewed this on Saturday. While the boil was going on I poured in a tiny bit of 2H for good luck. Cold pitched my Bell's yeast into 63 degree wort. By Sunday evening it had risen to 68 degrees and stabilized at that temp in my ferm chamber.

Use the search! Plenty of 001/US-05 tries on this recipe.
