About a week and a half ago i bottled my first batch of beer. the recipe was an IPA extract beer with a mini-mash. Everything tasted fine when i was bottling and i have tried a bottle daily since just to get an idea about how beer ages. Suddenly in the last 2 days i have started tasting this strong plastic PVC taste. It is in the aroma and beginning taste of the beer.
I have read everything i can but no one describes the flavor like this. It isnt a bandaid or medicinal smell. It is more like PVC. The after taste is good. I have tried several bottles and they all have variable degrees of this problem.
Has anyone had this problem?
Is this batch a loss?
