You got a bug. I know cause I got a similar bug, it was awful. I took steps and killed my bug.
I hope you kill yours.

I agree that it is Brett or house bug (worse). My own house bug tasted like what you are
describing. Luckily I was able to kill it off. I hope you can cure your problem.

My hydrometer is my least used piece of my original equipment. i've used it 5 or 6 times in
200+ batches. I instead use a refractometer for OG but I don't even care about FG.

Any beer aged that long would likely be horrible after 21 years. A great idea tho would be to

I remember 20+ years ago not liking SNPA or Anchor steam when they were pretty new on the
market. Wow, my tastes in beer sure have changed since then.
