    How do you test for these chloramines?If they're in your water they'll be listed on the water
    report from your public water utility.I've been talking to home and craft brewers in the
    neighborhood, an...

    I've used 3%-8% of acid malt in my saisons, golden strongs, and other belgian ales to get a
    sour tartness in my finished beer, and I have definitely been able to taste it. It works, it's
    easy, and you...

    Yep. Can't explain it, but talked to more than one person who has gotten a metallic off flavor
    from using cocoa powder. I could maybe have a reasoning for it if it were Dutch process, but
    I'm assuming...

    Did you use cocoa in the boil for the chocolate?I did. Could that be the issue??OP, brew with
    store-bought water (any) and let us know how it turns out. As with any problem, the key is to
    divide it in...

    I recently brewed a stout that had a pronounced metallic flavor going into the bottle. This has
    disappeared entirely over the last 3 months of aging. I realize Christmas is right around the
    corner, bu...

    I'm going to bump this up again to see if any ony else has any ideas or suggestions.Quick
    recap: my mint chocolate stout has a overwhelmingly strong metal aftertaste. This taste was not
    apparent when ...

    It was real mint. Half an ounce of spearmint, bruised in a bag against the countertop, added at
    flameout and removed before transferring to the fermenter.

    So far, I've tried two bottles and both had the metallic taste. But I have a couple more in the
    fridge that I wil try in a day or so.To the point of the others, the more you use your aluminum
    kettle, ...

    No brass fittings. I do have an aluminum boil kettle, but I would be a little surprised if that
    is the culprit since:[*]I have brewed several other batches in this kettle with no resulting
    metallic fl...

    I have read those and several other sources about where metallic beer generally comes
    from.However, as I explained in my original post, I don't believe that the normal causes for
    metallic off-flavors ...
