I don't typically use US-05, but I did in this last American Amber. I noticed a slight medicinal or alcoholic flavor about the middle of fermentation, which I attributed to a "green" beer. In the past I've gotten a fair amount of green apple from this strain during early fermentation.
I allowed the beer to sit in the primary for about 11 days total, with the gravity remaining at terminal for around 5 days. I've been cold crashing it for about 3 days now. I took a sample of it this morning, and I'm still getting the medicinal taste. I don't have that much experience with this yeast, but I wasn't expecting this.
Temperature was between 67 to 72 max (I intentionally raised the temp for a Diacetyl rest after 3 days at terminal gravity).
Thoughts? I have 2 other beers going right now as well, and they all had a little bit of this. I'm wondering if it's my pallet this morning? WLP029 (German Ale/Kolsch) and WLP820 (oktoberfest).
