Alas.....bad batch
I was all excited to tap my first keg today!Bad beer!I must of got an infection or some such thing,5 gallons of band-aid/iodine/marzipan flavored crap.It was our 23rd batch and the first bad one.It was an amber ale and i had to dump the works.
On the bright side i'll fill that corny back up in a week or so.

I know how you feel. I just kegged for the first time and one of the two batches going in came in at 1.020. This thing's been in secondary for like a month. Maybe it won't taste bad but I like my beers a little dryer.
