Great Lakes Pale Ale Recipe Kit Yeast Options: Fermentis Safale US-05 (Dry) bought from AIH. Nothing special or different in the brew. Clean my big mouth bubbler very well and sanitize with Star San. Hit OG 1.054 and FG 1.015 after 2 weeks. It was fermenting for a week around 68 and the second week around 62. Had a soured-funky smell to it and a taste like a pale-bitter and almost an offset grapefruit/citrus taste but decided to keg it anyway. Has the slight vinegar funk smell and still has the taste above but still barely drinkable. After a few beers, this is drinkable. Anyone else experience this? Did I mess something up or is this just the profile of that beer kit?
