Also, I should add. The off flavour develops at very different times in different beers. The
altbier I did in February tasted great out of the fermentor, was tasting pretty good in the keg
while it wa...

Would cross contamination be able to ruin a beer in 4 days at fridge temperatures (maybe about
5-6C)? Also, I've used all separate equipment for the mixed cultures except for the two kettle
sours I di...

Just wondering if there is an off flavour/type of infection that can show itself in a very
short amount of time? As in hydrometer sample tasted amazing on Sunday when I kegged, and as of
Wednesday I c...

It's not yet kegged, only on day 7 in primary. I used baking soda and a little chalk in the

is only 10 years old, I can't see there being any major issues. Could definitely be wrong
though, there ha...

Thanks for the responses. I think I can rule out specific ingredients. I don't want to write up
the details of every batch but I've used several different yeasts with a handful of different
hops with ...

I don't want to go into a crazy amount of detail (unless people want it), but I've been having
trouble lately getting consistent good tasting brews. My main concerns are contamination,

Both good suggestions. I figured I'd get a little hint of the dark fruit from the C120, but if
the special B is better suited maybe I'll switch it. Think the same amount as what I have for
C120 would ...

Just looking for some input on a Baltic Porter Recipe. I'm shooting for just over 8%, and
brewing it at the low end of ale temps rather than as a lager just because I have an altbier
sitting on a WY10...
