Hello all

I have a quick question I have just tasted one of my recently bottled beers (Probably a little early but I couldnt wait!!).

Now when I tasted the wort at bottling time it had a nice flavor but now after 2 weeks in the bottle it has taken on a slightly what can only be describred as a smokey taste its only slight but it can be picked and was after much discussion between myself and two mates as smokey nice but smokey.

The beer is a simple coopers larger with hallertau and saaz bags racked then bottled but not bulk primed!

Any ideas on what this may be caused by will be much appreciated. ;)

hmm. maybe you dropped half the bacon sanger in there from breakfast.
seriously though i have no idea.
for some reason when i invite mates over they want to roar up a fire outside.
i have to lie and say sorry no wood. real reason being i don't want all that stuff falling in my wort.
Once the little buggers ripped down my shed door and started a fire with that while i was passed out half way though a brew.
i awoke when the alarm went of for last minute hops etc to find my brew space filled with ashes. still it was no probs.
sorry a little brew story but no help.

cheers jayse.
maybe the little jovial religious man can help here.

Mental note to self do not eat bacon "sanger" whilst brewing beer

Yeah I have no idea as to what causes it but the beer still tastes ok

I thought that maybe it could be the onset of an infection Ive heard of people saying that their beer has a vegemite taste to it but I cant remember what caused it or if it was a deliberate thing!

Anyway it hasnt killed me yet so ill continue to drink it

Cheers

the vegemite isn't a infection.
thats called autolyis which comes from the yeast 'eating itself and spilling its guts out'

i like vegemite but maybe leave it to toast.
anyway for this to happen the beer needs to remain sitting on the yeast cake for sometime at warmer temps.

cheers
