Default hotdog flavor???

posted this before, didnt really get any definitive responses so maybe a fresh look will help.

wheat beer.
beer is now 2 weeks old, trying to decide whether to bottle or not.
gravity is stable. 1.012
smell and taste is aweful, like hotdogs!

infected or worth bottling.
i ask because ive read wheats are best young, so i cant see letting this sit for 3 months helping. and im gonna need those bottles for 2 batches i have in primary as of yesterday.

ideas??

I don't know what causes it but I know exactly what flavor you are talking about...Blue Moon is the only beer I have found that consistently features it.

time can cure a lot...but i doubt it is going to remove an awful hot dog taste and smell. i'd commit the sin and toss it.

My friends call hefeweizen "weiner beer" because it tastes like hot dogs.
I've never made one for this reason.
But I imagine there is something in the grains...

I've drank a lot of Hefes and Wits (mostly Blue Moon) and never noticed a hot dog flavor. I know the BJCP guidelines mention a "ham" flavor that should not be present in a wit, so that may be what you're getting. I only eat beef hot dogs, so maybe that's why I dont make the association.

Anyways - I dont know what causes it either. Sorry.

Well, Revvy is the resident infection guru. Maybe he will wander in and help you out. I have never heard of that personally.
