Just bottled a batch of a blonde ale and each bottle has a slight apple taste.
What could be the cause ??
The details - Blonde ale -- low OG came in about 1.038 used US-05 yeast.
Was only 3 gal batch and pitched a whole 11g pack of yeast.
Sanitation was good in my mind, only thing I can think of is there may have been some air still in the bottles when I capped them. Not sure if this taste is oxidation or acetaldehyde that I am tasting. It smells and tastes apple-ly but it could be a sherry flavor that to me tastes like apple.
Any help would be appreciated !
