Default Where did I go wrong?

Finally tapped the keg of my last batch. It has a sour apple aftertaste. What did I do wrong? Is it time to dump this batch?

I think I heard that usually means there has been a bacteria infection, were you very carefull with keeping everything clean?

But if it is more like green apples or a fresh cut pumkin, it just needs more time.

I have had that taste on a green brew as well. Cleared up nice after a month.
This place really went to hell. Follow the OF standard stout. Bye.

How long since you kegged it? Under a month, it's probably green, over 2 months, probably infected.
Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"
