Good morning all,
Been busy reading all the great info here and have learned alot. Just finished my first batch, a west coast pale ale. Had it in the fermentor 3 weeks,carbonating for 2 weeks and conditioning for another 2 weeks. I chilled the first bottle for 2 day and had my neighbor over for testing (he has been brewing for some time). The head on the beer was great. Color good not a really bold taste kinda like bud light. But there was kinda a plastic after taste. The taste went away after a few sips but if you went away from the beer it would come back. The refill that I used was past its experation date so i think that could have caused the lack of flavor but we were bothh stumped on the after taste. Any ideas?
thanks in advance
