Hi Dave,

I think that if you keg condition it will take longer to get the finished product you are looking for.  If you add sugar and do not give the yeast time to make alcohol the beer will be flat and sweet.  If you want to tap as soon as possible, I would force carbonate and save the sugar for a batch that has some time to mature.

Hi all,

Thank you for the advice on what this is, and that the homebrew store gu was wrong.  I kind of thought so...he recommended not bottle/keg conditioning and buying CO2 tanks and a regulator from him.  That sounded like he was just trying to make a sale...

Thanks for the advice!

The beer smells great, but tastes a little vinagar-y...

I (like punatic) would love to hear about the hurdles brewing commercially on a 20 gallon brew sculpture. 

Hi all,

I have noticed in my extract beers something that I would describe as slightly acidic after cask conditioning.  Is that along the same lines as the extract beer "twang"?  I kind of dought it because bannana and caramal seem to be the descripters people in this forum are using. 

Has anyone heard of acid being produced by yeast during bottle/keg conditioning?  The man running the homebrew supply shop said that happens and I should no longer bottle/keg condition.

As always, thanks for the feedback!

Kegging and Bottling / Off Flavor Two Weeks After Kegging
« on: February 15, 2012, 05:07:17 PM »
Hi all,

I have a question about keg/bottle conditioning beer.  I made a close of Bell's Double Cream Stout and it tasted GREAT after secondary fermentation, and even after bottle conditioning for a week (although it was a little flat).  The next week the beer developed an off flavor a little like vinigar.  I have noticed this quite often when tasting other's homebrewed beer as well.

Any ideas what might have happened / how to fix the process os that this no longer occurs?

Thank you for your input!

Does anyone know how any homebrewers there are in the US, and how fast we are growing?
