Tasted great for one month and then ....

What went wrong? Was this supposed to happen? Should I throw it out? What do I do now?

Tasted great for one month and then ....

Postby hangtendesign » Wed Sep 10, 2008 8:54 am

I made an all grain Pale Ale, it aged in the bottle for a month and then I drank it for a month. People loved it and I was happy (a little grainy but). Then in the matter of just one week it got the off flavor that my HBS had once diagnosed in a batch from the past. This off flavor was the same in three of my recent batches (with some really good ones in between with no problems). These beers that "went bad in the bottle" tasted like the same beer even though each of them used different hops and malt. (all in the Pale Ale category though).

My sanitation is very good but I must admit to hangin on to a siphon hose too long. I let my bottles sit in a bleach solution for a couple hours and then rinse and scrub with a bottling brush with boiled hot water.

My question is, if a beer tastes fantastic at bottling, how can bacteria develop after that? I thought bacteria can't really survive or grow in beer post bottling due to the alochol. I must be wrong. Has anyone had similar experiences?

Why use a bottle brush?

Off Flavor No More

Postby hangtendesign » Tue Dec 09, 2008 10:24 am

Well, to follow up. Ever since I removed that black crud in the spigot of my bottling bucket, that off flavor has never returned. I've brewed 4 batches since and the taste has been great! I still maintain my PBW soak now and I always take apart (carefully) the Italian spigot. I also went to Lowes and bought a fair amount of tubing that I change up more often. (3 or 4 uses)

Off Flavor No More

Postby bfabre » Tue Dec 09, 2008 10:32 pm

I once had a bucket with a spigot too. I took me three batches (in a row) to figure out what the problem was. I had to pour all three of them out because of an infection. Nevertheless, I tossed the bucket and purchased one without a spigot. I never used it anyway. Ever since then I never had a problem.
