Hi no-chillers I've brewed many times before but never done no chill. I bought a cube the other week and 9 days ago I did an Amber Ale with no chill for the first time. The recipe required some 5 min hop additions so because of no chill I decided to hold them off and just throw them into the cube 15 mins after flame out when I transferred the wort into the cube. I checked the SG about 4 days ago and I seem to recall have a little taste and it tasted fine. 3 days ago as part of a dry hop schedule I put 60g of Galaxy hops directly into the cube (batch size 19L). I've just checked today my gravity and I'm about my FG (1.015). The beer smells good from the dry hops but when I taste it, I get this taste that arrives late on which I would describe as a harshness, almost that classic description of sucking on a tea bag. I'm also reminded of when you get a bad coffee and there's a harshness to the coffee, a bit like that. Any thoughts as to what might have caused this? I'm thinking it could be: - The dark grains being mashed rather than steeped? - The hops in at flameout and left directly in the wort for 10 days? - The dry hops (although only been in for 3 days) And the important question - any thoughts on whether the beer can be saved? Cheers Edit: Just to be clear, I no chilled in the cube then I fermented in the cube as well.
