    I'm going to agree that it's likely the tap water. I always heard the if you can brew coffee
    with it and it's fine, then you can brew beer with it. So I used tap water on my very first
    batch and every...

    +1 on taking notes. Also, one thing that can't be overstated. Don't be discouraged if you crack
    one open and it's....OK. It's amazing how different your beer can be after a few more weeks of

    I used tap water for my first brew and ended up with the same smells/taste. Although I drink it
    and brew coffee with it and don't notice them, it seemed to be enhanced when I brewed beer with

    I am currently enjoying an ESB recipe I threw together. It's definitely very English. Per
    Beersmith it's at 35 IBUs. However, I used Northern Brewer and Willamette so it doesn't have

    You should look into putting your hops in a bag. This allows you to extract the goodies and

    Not to steer you away from fly sparging if you're dead set, but batch sparging is another

    Ed, I wanted to give credit where credit's due. I scored 3rd place at the Dixie Cup in Houston
    with a close rendition of this recipe. Looking forward to seeing the score sheets! Thanks for a
    great rec...

    Regardless of the reason for your....mishap, I would definitely put the rest of the bottles in
