Hey guys. I have been brewed a few batches of beer now, all have been different styles of ales. I have had an odd occurrence with a few of them. There has been an odd after taste, sort of like plastic. It has not been present in all of my batches which makes it more strange. I am doing small batches in food grade plastic buckets; but I am told that that wont cause the off taste. Have any of you experienced this; or know what could be causing it? See More

Don't get me wrong the bread tastes good. It just isn't like the bakery...I hate…See More
