  • Posted in thread: When To Drink an IPA? on 10-11-2012 at 07:30 PM
    About 75% of the beers I make are IPAs. I usually keg them right after 14 days of single stage
    fermentation and start drinking them as soon as they are carbonated. ... well oftentimes after
    2 or 3 day...

    This probably isn't your problem but just thinking back to what my wife describes as "homebrew
    taste" which i still get - yeast still in suspension. If I hand her a young beer or a gravity
    sample that...

    your "homebrew taste" could be from your water, the common base ingredient, or your yeast if
    you always use the same strain. If you always use dry nottingham or us05, buy a liquid culture
    and give it ...

    Those are good starts, though you don't need a starter with dry yeast.I apologize if I missed
    it, but have you been able to isolate the flavor in a certain type of beer? Like, are your
    porters fine bu...

    Yikes! Sorry!:mug:It is all good man. I definitely want to track down the cause of off-taste
    and this thread has given me a few things that I know I can watch more closely...notably...
    using a yeast s...

    Another peeve I have with the original poster, when I look at this listing of "“Off” Flavors In
    Beer", I don't see that "homebrew" taste in there anywhere. To me, it would make sense to
    identify what ...

    That's a good point. Also, try an ice/water bath in a cooler or bin and put your fermenter in
    there. Monitor the actual fermentation temperature of the beer with a stick-on thermometer
    (like for aquar...

    Something that just hit me that I should clear up. Austin says to get the wort down to 80, move
    to primary fermenter, and then top off water and pitch the yeast. So I bet I am actually
    pitching at a t...

    OP, I live in Austin and started out using LME from them since their kits come that way. I've
    since switched and can definitely tell the difference. Maybe it is just me, but I can't recall
    having a be...

    For me and think the OP as well I was trying to get away from the monotonous homebrew taste
    that was present in each batch I brewed. I think you are confusing what we are trying to
    describe with good ...
