Never experienced it just from time in ales myself, even leaving brews on the yeast for two or three months.

Have you looked at it? I bet the hydro sample must be pretty clear by now. If your gravity is stable, cold crash and rack to keg. No worries IMO. :mug:

I've left beers in the primary for 2 months with no ill effects, I believe some have gone longer. It will be fine as long as your temps are stable and don't go much over 70*F after the initial active...

I don't suppose there was anyhting different between the two? Could be a clue...



I've use glass, BBs, and buckets, and haven't noticed a difference in taste due to the choice of fermentor.

You might want to consider hiding a six pack or two of this from yourself for a year or so.

Sounds like it turned out great, congrats!
