I made this HB51 Big Brew Day + spices + Jaggery frankenbrew. I split it on 1098 and 1214. I have yet to bottle the latter since it was huge and I was lazy.
Anyway, I bottled the 1098 and it is STRONG. I also get a slight metalic oxydation flavor too (I hate that!) and pretty much figure I'd have that swill for a long time.
In desparation for a beer last night, I cracked one and didn't put it in a glass. I drank it straight from the bottle.
I didn't get that oxidation flavor. Is it because I was getting yeast, or that the beer didn't "open up" like in a glass. Or is it a miracle
