Yep, I've had metallic taste and darkened beer when only used with normal kegerator CO2. It seems to be a factor of how long the beer spends in the minikeg. The longer it is in there, the more risk you run. Contamination is not apparent if you serve the same day as you fill. It is very noticeable if the beer sits in the minikeg for 4 weeks.

Quite a few good Belgians use a combo of Styrian Goldings and Saaz. I reckon both work best with pale or golden beers, but you won't go wrong with them in darker beers either.

If it was Goldcross H2O2 then the main stabiliser is phosphoric acid with traces of phenacetin and it is pharmaceutical grade.

Customer base? That would be beer drinkers that are willing to pay a bit extra so they don't have to drink megaswill.


Beer Cartel does not sell any brewing stuff.

In Topic: Sparge water treatment

I think this topic is more about sparge water, rather than mash water. The pH of the water towards the end of a fly sparge is likely to have some effect. I'd guess that tannin extraction is the primary concern.
