How long have they been carbing?Try giving a couple bottles a week in the fridge, see if that
calms it down. I had a batch recently that was overcarbed and would have a ton of head unless I

That would also be my guess, as the roasted grains can be pretty acrid and give you a burnt
coffee taste. You also aren't using a lot of base grain, so the roasted barley could easily

I had a couple S-05 brews get too warm, around 75-76, this winter. One batch was horrible and
was my first dumper. The second had a ton of esters but is at least drinkable, especially with

Holy cow. I agree with hogwash, I don't think it's rotten fruit unless something went awry
elsewhere, but there's a lot going on in your beer. I assume this is a 5 gallon batch? Gonna be
a while until...

I'd cut the crystal way down 1) since Amber LME already has crystal in it, and 2) 1.5 total lbs

Give 10 random people a taste of your "Award winning beer" and see if they agree. My guess is
you would be disappointed as not everyone has the same tastes. Some of the best beers I've made
don't get ...
