I’ve now brewed 4 beers total, an APA, Porter, American wheat, and SMaSH. In the porter I split the batch into two and used brewers best caramel and pecan natural extract flavoring. At the time of bottling it tasted decent. Figured it would mature. It’s now 2.5 weeks later and I cracked one open and the taste is a very very artificial almost chemical-like taste. Last night my American wheat which I added 2.25lbs of dark sweet cherries at high krausen finished fermentation. I checked my FG and hit my goal. I tasted the sample and it was bitter and dry as expected. You definitely can tell it’s a fruit beer.. I have brewers best natural cherry flavoring as well. I took one glass sample of non carbonated beer and measured out 1ML of flavor and added that to the sample to see if it would help. It again brought out a chemical like cough syrup taste. Needless to say I will not be adding any of it to my beer. I’m experimenting with a habanero tincture that’s been soaking vodka to add to a small portion of my mosaic SMaSH Beer. Did anyone else have similar experiences with these extract flavoring? Any tips on my porter which I have 3 gallons with flavoring added? Will a longer condition help?
