I made 10 gallons of a Pliny the Elder clone a couple months ago. I filled two 5-gallon Cornelius kegs. One is already gone... and it was quite tasty. However, I just cracked the other one open... maybe I had a soapy glass, but the beer tasted soapy. I usually rinse the keg out first. Then I wash it with a brush and dishwashing liquid. I then rinse it again, and add boiling water and seal it up for a couple days. Then I add iodaphor to the five gallons of water inside (the previously boiling water that's cooled). Then I drain prior to use and rinse again. I undo the gas and beer ports... and tubes... and clean them as well. I think I did everything right. I'm just wondering if anyone might be able to tell me why my beer tastes soapy now? I have had the second keg of Pliny setting in the fridge for over a month now. Perhaps I drank a big taste of yeast at the bottom of the keg? But I've never heard that yeast tastes soapy. Cheers, Bill
And by the way... HUUUUUUAHHHHHHHHHH... Bin Laden bit it!!!!
