The first was an NW IPA that was a kit... the problem with this one is that it took 3 hours to get my water boiling on an electric stove! then I dont even think it really broke and I got impatient. Result: Was wonderfully hoppy... with a metallic like taste... YUK! My second batch... a stout. I thought I resolved all my problems buying a 60,000 btU burner. The beer was drinkable, but unbalanced. The problem I think was I chose and/or measured out the ingredients wrong. I really do not know. I have not attempted another batch as my confidence is pretty much down when it comes to my brewing skills. Anyone else go through this? BTW... I know I sanitized correctly using starsan and brand new bottles to boot.
