How much bottling sugar did you use? How warm have the bottles been? You will probably oxidize your beer if you do anything to it now... and one batch of low-carb nectar is better than five gallons...

I find I get the best hop aroma when I add the aroma hops five minutes before, and again just as, I stop boiling. Give that brew another try with .5oz aroma hops each at five and zero minutes, and...

Don't dump it unless it tastes foul-- and not even then unless it has aged a few months and still tastes foul. That doesn't look all that bad, and I am going to guess it's just yeast.

Also, get...

+1 to this, especially considering you're cloning a Timothy Taylor beer. That yeast is from that very brewery... and also happens to be my favorite english strain, bar none.
Good luck on your next...

Off-topic, but worth mentioning if you get bottle bombs: if your are adding the corn sugar per bottle, you're probably adding it as powder or carbing drops and then filling up with beer, right?

I wonder how many hydrometers would have been spared if the cap on the bottom of the tube couldn't be removed, or was threaded on instead of push-fit.

I had Saranac Brewing's Wild Hop Pils about 2 weeks ago, made with Belma hops. It was the last bottle in the store, over in the mix and match section. Boy, I wish I had a case of it.

Band-Aid/Rubber Bung smells could also be from wild yeasts. That's the only thing I can think of... your bung itself won't flavor the beer as far as I know.

OK, one vote for a new kettle, then! I think my problem's a combination of "needs more sparge" and "needs a better crush," then. Thanks for the pointer with the noodle pot, I'll see what's for sale!...

I'd say use 6.6lb. per 5 gallons of that Munich syrup and an ounce of hops at 60 and 20 minutes and a half an ounce at 10 and 0 minutes. Hit it with maybe nottingham yeast and tell us how it tastes!
