    Help w/ Off Flavor in multiple beers, across multiple batches

    Planning to re-brew these recipes minus the 6-row. Will post results. These batches have really thrown me for a loop. Thanks to everyone for all the help!

    That's my next plan. Repeat one the batches exactly, minus 6-row. Thanks!

    Batches were various combinations of older/newer grain, Rahr 6-row, Briess Brewers malt, Rahr pilsen, Malteuroup 2-row. In some, there were higher percentages of older malt, others inversed.

    Those batches were also BIAB and they did not have that flavor. I am not double crushing. Not sure what my crush gap is, its the standard setting for my barley crusher purchased from AIH.

    Here is the first experiment... ...Looks very nice, but there is something off slightly about it taste/smell wise. Not bad, just not quite right. Slightly thin/cider-ish.
