Opened a new bottle of wine and got that wiff of bananas. It went away after two days of sitting. Had a porter that smelled like cider vinegar, so strong it made my eyes water. After three weeks in cold storage(50*f) it went away. You need to just let it sit for awhile, like coupe said. Check it in a few weeks and see what is going on.

Glad to hear it! I know sometimes patience is the hardest thing when making beer. It is something I am learning too!


I make note of those off flavors and smells in my recipe "book" and the approx dates it was noticed, so if I make it again or use that same yeast i will remember and not panic all over again.

yep, as the brew in question was my first that was not from a kit and had fresh hops in it, I was just not aware of what the right and wrong smells and tastes should be.

It all comes with experience I suppose and at least you get to drink beer whilst finding out!!
