    Have you done a ph and mineral check on your well water? You can get one at Home Depot or lowes... I haven't had this problem, of course I've only brewed it once, but have tasted it all through the process and this batch is at about 6-8 weeks old now

    What are you drinking now?

    How is it? I just returned home from 10 days in San Diego, where after touring the stone brewery I found myself drinking lots of stone products the rest of my trip! I bought the stone brewery coffee table book and there r recipes for several of their beers. I think I'm going to brew a copy of...
