Im a new AG brewer and used tap water a couple of times. After some research I found out chlormines are not a good thing so I picked up some campden. My 1st batch I used tap water has a really strange lingering after flavor thats just not good. I have my 2nd beer that was made with tap water that needs bottled but was wondering if adding campden to the bottling bucket would help?

After fermentation I'm guessing ( and it's a total guess ) that the compounds have combined to produce the phenols and don't think campden at this time would help. Can you describe the flavor? Burnt plastic or medicinal?

you need to use campden in your water before you brew with it. if you add it now, it will kill your yeast.
