Hello! Well, like it says I've only attempted 4 batches so far and I just dumped my last keg because it had a strong cleaner, medicine, strong alcohol type of taste. Local brewmaster at the home-brew store thought it was from Star San. My question is could that also have been from too high of a fermentation temp? First batch brewed in January and back room was cooler. The rest have been in a closet and the air temp is about 72 degrees. I'm pretty sure the fermentation temp was too high. So, I just converted my upright freezer with a temp controller to a fermentation chamber to address that. Had cloudy beer also, and got a Brewers Best immersion chiller to address that. Next, with sanitation while boiling if you put your spoon in to stir and take it out and lay across the top of the kettle, does that have to be re sanitized before stirring again? I'm getting paranoid at this point because I just tapped my last beer and that has some of that taste as well. That was fermented at room temp though. My first beer using the new setup with the fermentation chamber and immersion chiller is fermenting now. I'm just half afraid to brew right now but want to SO bad! Also, my local homebrew expert really likes One Step and says that is safe for a cleaner and it will sanitize as well. That is safe to use wet too, so you don't have the dry time like Star San. I do have both though. Someone please point me in the right direction. Thanks, and sorry for rambling.
