    Wild yeast or old beer yeast could get in the air tubing if you don't have a check valve that
    prevents it. However I don't see you getting a bitter flavor from that - it would be sour/tart,
    acidic/vin...

    I actually have a theory as to what may have happened. If I'm right, it is all operator error.
    I brew on a single tier, three kettle set-up. When I'm done with my saccharification rest and I
    bring the...

    It sounds similar to what happened to me a few months ago. The welding shop I get my CO2 from
    deals with a lot of wineries and breweries, both home and commercial. It's not uncommon for a
    CO2 tank to ...

    So I'm new to this. Just joined the forum a few days ago. I've only brewed two batches. My
    second batch has been in primary for a week. It was a 3 gallon batch of cream ale. First brew
    without a kit, ...

    like tannin. Try adding some acid to the sparge water or using RO water.I hit all of those
    marks. Sparge is 168. pH for Mash and Sparge are always between 5.5 and 5.8 depending on how
    much dark grai...

    The past two batches that I've brewed have been with different yeasts and different recipes.
    Each aged out properly (3+ weeks) before I kegged them. Each also has the same harsh bitter
    aftertaste -- e...

    Just to provide an update in case it helps the next brewer...I racked the porter over to a
    corny this morning, took a hydrometer reading, and it was right on 1.0215. Thanks guys.

    You definitely don't need to stir once you have re-pitched more yeast like you did.It sounds
    like stpug has pointed you in the right direction with the refractometer info...Going through
    the small pri...

    Alright. So after pumping from boil kettle through chiller and into fermenter, I always take an
    accurate hydrometer reading. However, as fermentation occurs, I sample with a 5ml glass pipette
    and test...

    It's easier done than explained :D . This site gives all the nitty gritty details. (I think)So
    this refractometer has been lying to me this whole time?
