    I bought mine from Yakima Valley. They did not disappoint. I'd pour one and you could smell it
    as soon as you open the tap.

    I really like this beer. I don't detect a distinct cat piss flavor in mine. Maybe you could
    describe it like that. This is my first time exploring all these hops. I use TG as a point of
    reference. It'...

    I really wanted the King Sue, but I was only able to get the Sosus this time around. However, I
    do currently have this pseudosue recipe on tap but with Mosaic hops so I was able to compare
    the hop fla...

    Oh, I would think your water is fine as is. I listened to a podcast with one of the starsan
    founders and he said only extremely hard water could be a problem. Most tap water should be
    fine. My HCO3 le...

    I wouldn't panic. From my understanding, all starsan is going to get cloudy eventually. If you
    want, make some starsan solution with distilled or RO water and replace the airlocks. Or use
    vodka. Even ...

    Oh and I just finished off a star san bottle that had to be 4-5 years old. Worked great with
    distilled and killed off the infection problem I had. I wouldn't worry about that.

    Ok cool. The new water source may be the culprit. You can do a google search and get a water
    report. The bicarbonate level of my tap water is around 355 which is really high. You could put
    star san in...

    Are you using tap water? There are already minerals in the extract, so you should be using
    distilled or reverse osmosis water. The minerals in your water, plus the minerals in the
    extract could be cre...

    The reason I'm guessing sanitation is because he said it started to happen post fermentation
    and got worse from there. Mine tasted great when sampling my gravity tests, but started going
    downhill afte...

    A month on the yeast should be fine. What sanitizer are you using? I had a chronic infection
    problem too. I finally figured out my tap water was way too hard for starsan, putting it
    outside the proper...
