    Filtered water, not distilled. The Burton-Trent salts add a bit of Ca, K, and Mg to the water.
    I also use a yeast nutrient as well. Not a sudden drop of temp, just guessing, but generally
    would say it...

    Three questions:What kind of water are you using?We have very good drinking water system here
    in town, so mainly out of tap filtered, but for this one I actually used store bought filtered
    water and a...

    I have been homebrewing off and on for about 15 years now and have gotten fairly good over time
    but I still get these same problems and lately nearly every one of my beers has not finished at
    the expe...

    Well I did soak and clean the hose in hot water for about 45 minutes and gave long rinse. The
    beer is perfectly carbonated and it seems for the most part the rubbery off flavor has either
    "aged" itsel...

    It is 5ft of 1/4" ID line I believe so barely 0.25 onces in that run. I will mess around with
    the line and clean it. probably open up the keg and grab a sample too to see if the taste is
    present prior...

    If the clear beer line can impart this off flavor woundnt everybody using it be having this
    issue ??? I figured since I purchased it from a very reputable high end LHBS (F. H. Steinbarts)
    there would ...

    I removed the old stuff I was using, it was red line, same as I used for the air, but was
    pretty fouled after 5 years of sitting so opted for the new clear line...never had the issue
    with the red line...

    Well that was a thought, and yes it is brand new clear beer supply line from the HBS. I think I
    rinsed it, but not really a good sanitizing soak. The corni keg and fittings were cleaned well
    and sanit...

    I kegged up a very nice English IPA last week. Have been primarily bottling for the last 5
    years, but decided to keg this batch. I had an old tank of CO2 I got from a friend, probably 10
    years old. Af...
