I recently tried brewing my first Belgian IPA. I picked up WYeast 1388 because it was labeled as "Belgian Strong Ale" yeast. When I went to bottle the beer, everything smelled fine, nothing out of the ordinary. Everything looked okay, but when I sampled a little bit, I noticed a definite sour taste. I later read the profile that said it gives a "tart finish." I was wondering if anyone else has used this yeast, and, if so, has does it make the beer sour, or did I probably have a sanitation problem? I bottled it anyway, since I put all that work into it, but if it went bad, I guess I'll have to dump them out.
