Tasted kind of phenolic. Kind of plastic like. But i believe it was caused by the spices in the beer and not wild yeast. Recipe had cinnamon, ginger all spice, and clove.

Phosphoric acid in sparge water

Bru'n water says to add 20ml to my 9 gallon sparge water to get to 5.5 ph from 7.5. Will this amount of acid cause any off flavors? By the way, it is 10% phosphoric acid.

oxygen and 10 gallons.

I've read that for a 5 gallon batch a 30 second oxygen infusion is the way to go. Should I do 1 minute for a 10 gallon batch? FYI I am using a 15 gallon fermenter and not two 6.5 gallon carboys
