    So, I finally got around to bottling this beer. 4.5 month cold crash couldnt make it any worse,
    could it?:cross:

    I'd give it 2-4 weeks before pulling a taste sample. Sample again 2-4 weeks after that and see
    IF it's improving at all. IF it is, then you can think about moving to another vessel for long

    In my experience (never used Nottingham yeast, since I'm using all liquid beer yeasts) the
    yeast will perform best in the temperature range it's listed for. In this case, that's 57-70F.
    "The recommend...

    Nottingham gets positively foul above 72 degrees. It's great at 59-64 degrees or so. Next time,
    chill the wort to like 60 degrees, and then pitch the yeast. That will stop this from

    Only time will tell how long it will take to get rid of the off flavors, IF it can at all.
    IMO/IME, in the 70's is far too warm to pitch ale yeasts. All the ones I use max out at

    What yeast are you using?? It's not uncommon to get very different results from the same yeast
    fermenting at different temperatures.Personally, for ale yeasts (which is all I use) I aim to
    chill to th...

    The early hours are important for flavors, you're obviously smelling the banana already
    (typical of high temp). For future batches, chill the wort down to 65-66F before pitching the
    yeast. Those high ...

    Is the thermometer on the carboy/bucket or is it recording the temp inside the freezer?Also, if
    your freezer can't keep the temp down, it might be broken.Yes its on the side of the carboy. Im
    pretty s...
