Depending in what your brewing, that aroma could be perfectly normal. Some yeast strains give off a banana/clove aroma (german, Belgian, hefeweisen etc)
I wouldn't sweat it.

I tend to agree with John. With those hop varieties, you should see little issue. But, in general, your assumption is correct.
Good Luck :mug:

I've run across similar readings, and I tend to feel I probably didn't stir it well for that first reading, and take a second one.
With a refractometer, the temp issue doesn't matter as much.

I have used both, and had the same concern about Stevia. I used it last night in a small batch of root beer and cream soda, and I really enjoyed it. No noticable aftertaste.

I have had several disasters along the way and decent beer always was the end result. Maybe not what I was originally shooting for, but something to remember for the next batch.

I'm thinking it wil taste fine. If you are tracking your gravities and they are similar it should work. There may be some differences in flavor, but still quite drinkable.

Torani is what we have been using, but I know there are others.

For a first batch, I'd go with a basic pale ale recipe. A porter would be great a little further down your pipeline.
A simple pale ale will help you see the process, and it will be ready to drink...
