So im doing my best to enjoy my first brew, a pale ale kit from my lhbs. It has some off flavor that I can't really describe. Bitter is all that really comes to mind (maybe metallic?). I know I pitched while it was still warmer than it should have been, around 80°f Also, it was fermenting in a room at about 68°f. I know thats also kinda warm. I've since built a stc1000 controlled fermentation chamber to take care of that end of it, but here's the problem with my early pitching. We've got a 15 month old, and when the wife is stuck watching him solo for that long on brew day, she lets it be known that I'd better help with the lil man pretty soon, so I've had to rush the pitch. Would I be better off just sticking it in my chamber and coming back in a few hours, when I can sneak back down to the basement for a few minutes to pitch when I'm in that situation?
