My latest APA did not turn out great so I emailed my local microbrewery to see if they would be willing to test it out. He didn't have to but the guy who owned the place was more than willing to. I brought in a bottle and after tasting, testing, etc., he determined that my ale has a wild yeast.
The bad part is that he thinks the beer will actually get worse over time. He had a good suggestion-get another commercial ale and do a half and half to help with the after-taste.
Definitely bummed that $40 down the drain and I have to power through 40 beers and wait 6 weeks until my ESB is done.
I want to plug the guy who helped me out, thanks Danno!
