I should note that I did have an acetaldehyde flavour in a previous ale, and this is the first
beer that I've put in the same corny keg since then. So, it could be acetic acid bacteria, from

I just got two used corny kegs. One in particular is suspect... hot PBW soaked and starsanned

I have also had this problem with my last three beers, all in different fermentation buckets.

Question for you saison veterans:I am fermenting nice and warm to try to get as much flavour
