I have been using iodophor and a no rinse sanitizer on a jar. I have used tap water that has not cloudiness and doesn't have any chemical taste very clean water an I have also used water from a machine that uses reverse osmosis. I have never had a stable temp on my last to batches but the blonde I am keeping a close eye on and am keeping it cool within the temp called for on directions.

Should I use a secondary fermenter or stay with the primary with the blonde ale

That's a loaded question. I use kegs as my secondary. Where are you from? I suggest joining a club and bringing beer for people to try. I did that and it helped me out big time. Most clubs have plenty of bjcp judges. Hard to tell what's going on dirtying on my couch.

Keep with it and it will get better. Make sure you clean and sanitize religiously.

I went thru the same Thing your going thru months ago. Pm if you want to chat in phone and I can help.

It would be MUCH more beneficial if you could describe the off-flavor better than just "an aftertaste". Does it taste like canned vegetables? Or like buttered popcorn? Is it sour? There's a ton of possibilities, and nobody can really help pinpoint your problem until you give more information.

Okay guys after many tastes and I'm still have trouble describing it. It's kinda sour and as a strong smell kinda like rubbing alcohol. It kinda smells like the inside of a guniness after its sat out. Like a mild written taste. I know this is still brief. I'm trying to get a better description. I have had five people try it and they all can't describe it.
