I experienced this same metallic taste. For me it was my beer line that needed to be cleaned. All i did was run some star san through it...Worked for me.

I know this has been out of works for a while, but just started kegging and is my problem. Thread has helped and going to check my water levels. Kayos??? Did it go away with aging in the keg? Do you remember how long it took?

Nope Got worse with time. It ended up narrowing it down to my terrible water. When I got into kegging, I also read a lot on AG and that my RO water alone was no good for it. So I went back to tap. That's what the prob was. Now I use the water primer by AJdelange and all is well. 3 dumper batches first though with a stronger and stronger metallic taste.
