I had a "wrong metalurgy" stainless false bottom that put some metalic taste into a couple batchs. Or maybe soaking it in chlorine (a no-no for stainless) did something to it's surface . It has rusted since I stopped using it...
So far, I've had more experience thinking than I've had brewing....you don't think they are mutually exclusive, do you?
72 batches so far,
48 wine, mostly Loquat, peach, plum, prickly pear
23 beers and ciders
1 Tequila, from a prickly pear wine experiment that didn't work. I call it "Prickly Heat"
