Help Saving a Pale Ale
Im in a weird spot with a beer I kegged last weekend.
I'd thoroughly cleaned the keg, but didnt go so far as to take it apart. I force carbed and served, and low and behold, the beer had coffee grounds in it!
See, i'd used the keg immediately prior to serve a coffee stout, and apparently ended up with coffee grounds in the outlet valve pop-it. I took it apart, cleaned it, and all is well... except the flavor.
Apparently, the coffee grounds imparted some flavor into my otherwise mild pale ale. and i dont like it.
I'm debating on what to do about it. I'm thinking about tossing some Chinook into the keg and dryhopping for a week, with the hopes the chinook will overpower the coffee, and i'll end up with something i consider drinkable. I could also make a hop tea with the Chinook, then add that. Or i could do both.
Anyone experienced this before? Any advice?
