Default Alcohol.... strong alcohol.

I brewed some muntons wheat from lme. I split the batch in 2 mr beer kegs..
one has a strong alcohol aftertaste ... the other seems normal.

what might cause this?
this after taste is not pleasure-able.. kinda like a cheap wine or something...
might it clear up?
BTW: it's been grewing for 8 days.. using muntons dry yeist...

Too-warm fermentation temperatures can cause this, but I think the real cause is just that the beer is only 8 days old. It'll be totally different in 3 weeks.

Ting, Ting, TIng....8 days? Go back to the Mr Beer forum and read the stuff I posted about conditioning, and patience. Don't judge your beer till it's been in a bottle for three weeks!

I doubt 3 hours would be enough to 'cause a huge production of fusil alcohol flavors...

How did you pitch the yeast over 2 batches? Did you mix it all in one pot, add yeast, then split the batches? Or put them in the mr beers, then pitch a half pack of yeast in each? You may have gotten a few more grain of yeast in one, and it's a little more ahead of the other...

Either way I'm pretty sure once it's gone through the bottling process, and mellowed it'll be fine.

I think it'll be OK. Just give it another week in the fermenter and test it.

I guess the worst thing would be that I'd have some crazy booze type beer..... It won't make me blind will it?
hehehehe

Nope, but it may affect your spelling. BTW, have you been drinking it recently?

hehe no excuse there but being in a rush. Although, I'll bet it would destroy all capacity for spelling...
