Need some help on this one guys...... Bottled up my first all grain brew this past weekend (Big Sky Brewary Moose Drool Clone) and it seemed to have an off flavor when I cracked one open yesterday to have a sample. I knew it wouldn't be fully carbonated since it only had been bottled for 3-4 days but I was just looking for enough to get an idea how it was coming along. I'm one who likes to taste my brews through all facits to taste through progression. The interesting thing is it didn't have this taste prior to bottling and was quite tasty. I'm pretty anal about sanitization and I've never had this issue in any of the other brews I have made but they have all be partial mash and this was my first all grain. From what I understand and read this may be a phenolic (plastic, band-aid, medicinal) type off flavor. I'm hoping it may be just from being too yound and will hinder in a few weeks with some age....any ideas???
