Posted in thread: Acetaldehyde in my Lagers! Please help. on 05-20-2015 at 02:10 AM
Grape kool-aid doesn't sound like acetaldehyde to me, either. You may want to try a German
yeast, like the Weihenstephen strain or the German Bock strain. Also, send a beer into

Dunno if it works or not, but I would've just gotten the regular aluminum foil, and spritzed it
