That can be a few things. Could be cloramines, when you ferment too hot it has some different off flavors from that. Did you use tap water? Have you had an issue in he past?

Write everything down when you brew from what water you use what you cleaned with whether you rinsed your sanitizer/type of sanitizer, how much yeast what temp, etc. how long of a lag,etc..everything,it helps find out any problems a little easier.And to see any patterns. I think you may be ok letting it conditon till you think its right.How far along has it been bottled?
Instead of thinking it fermented hot,you should know what temp it is and thats half the battle.
I ended up really liking my 2 toasted pale ale i had to sub and used toasted malt 05 yeast was a nice twist but a bit belgiany with a fuller mouthfeel and more toasted malt/maltiness.A different beer but it still fit in to the very good range.
I wish i had some centeniall i would brew this up in a heartbeat again,in fact its probably one of the only ones i will tweak for many batches, its a base for a great beer

Just bottled this last weekend. I altered this recipe to the following:

10 lbs Pale malt
2 lbs Vienna malt
12 oz. Crystal 20L malt
8.oz. Cara-Pils malt

3.5oz. Whole Centennial hops

2, 1oz pkg. American Ale II Wyeast 1272

Single Infusion, Light Body, Batch Sparge.
Mash in 16.56 qts @ 159.1F > 148F 75mins
Batch sparge w/4 steps (Drain mash tun, 1.41gal, 1.41gal, 1.41gal) @168F (10 min each step)

.5oz Centennial 1st wort 60.min
.5oz Centennial 1st boil 60.min
.5oz Centennial boil 45.min
.5oz Centennial boil 30.min
.5oz Centennial boil 15.min
.5oz Centennial flame out 0.min

Measured OG 1.065

Here is where I had to tweek it a bit. Pitched 1oz Wyeast 1272 in primary. After 4 days no active airlock, decided to pitch a 2nd Wyeast 1272 based on Recommendation on Wyeast forums on OG of 1.065 or higher, calling for a double pitch. on 5th day slow steady activity was seen for 3 more days. Moved to secondary on 8th day. Dry hopped with .5oz Centennial.



bottled on day 16 with measured FG 1.010

Gives me 7.3 abv

Color dead on with Bells 2ha aroma just incredible. Clarity is incredible already.

Will let you know in a few weeks how this turned out. It will also be entered into a local home brew contest.

Picked up ingredients for this today, but my LHBS would only sell me 2 oz of Centennial due to the shortage. Instead I'm going to use Columbus for bittering and Centennial and Simcoe for Flavor/Aroma. I know it won't be a clone, but I like that hop combination.

Blending 70% Cascades and 30% Columbus is a time-honored method of subbing for Centennial hops.

Obviously , your clone is on the left, this coming from a well trained eye for consumption. You drank more of the clone than the 2HA
