    The bad flavor is definitely medicinal or plastic-y, phenolic.I brewed the exact same batch
    this past weekend, and treated all of the mash and sparge water with the proper amount of
    campden. It is fer...

    I have read up on some other posts, and I believe chloramines is probably the cause. I have
    never used Campden tablets, other than for cider making, but it sounds like that would be a

    Just went on to post about the same issue, then found this thread. I made an APA a couple of

    delicious to me.
