I was contemplating dumping it because it's just blah. It's a 4 gallon batch, mostly Rahr pils, and a little munich, and I think a little acid malt to bring down the pH (used RO water with enough calcium chloride to get to 50ppm and pH to 5.4 as per Bru'n water). Mittelfruh to about 18 IBUs, and fermented with 34/70, 5.3%. It's just blah. I'm finding I don't like Rahr pils, just don't care for the malt character. I'm thinking it has to be the malt I don't like about this beer. I've brewed essentially the same recipe with my tap water, RO water, US-05 fermented at 58F, and 34/70 at 48F. Has the same flavor I just don't like.
So, last night I was lying sleepless in bed, and the thought popped in my head that maybe I could keg hop it with something. Maybe that'll turn it around, I don't know.
What do y'all think? Aside from the malt flavor I don't care for, the beer tastes pretty clean.
Or is there anything else I could do to make it so I don't want to dump this beer? I have several others waiting to be drank. Sucks because it's not bad enough to dump, but it's not really that good.
Cheersk und beersk!
