Not kidding. I just transferred my Amarillo and MO SMaSH from primary to secondary and had a bit of a taste test along with the Hydro (which was spot on). The recipe for said beer is as follows:
3 gal batch All grain stovetop BIAB
6.5 lb Pale Malt, Maris Otter (3.0 SRM)
0.50 oz Amarillo Gold [8.50 %] - First Wort 60.0 Hop
0.50 oz Amarillo Gold [8.50 %] - Boil 15.0 min Hop
0.50 oz Amarillo Gold [8.50 %] - Boil 0.0 min Hop
0.50 oz Amarillo Gold [8.50 %] - Dry Hop 10 Days
American Ale (Wyeast Labs #1056) w/starter.
Upon smelling the beer my cohort and I both detected a distinct manure-like smell. Upon tasting I felt that the same smell transferred to the taste and my buddy did not taste anything amiss. I know I know leave the beer be, but this is quite a funky odor and we have had a few failed batches in the past :/
Please let me know what you all think. Appreciate it folks!
