Hey guys, I just finished my third batch (Waldo Lake Amber Ale) and tried a sample before kegging/bottling. I had an observation I want to bring to your attention. The kit was a partial mash extract kit with the malt syrup jugs, as were the 2 before that (Brewers best IPA and Brewers best Wheat beer).
The ‘taste’ I keep getting I’m sure that most of you are familiar with. I can’t put my finger on it, but it does kind of overwhelm the beer at first. I guess it’s the malt extract/syrup? Is there anything that I can do to reduce this taste? I’m about to brew the White House Honey Porter, and I’d like a nice smooth taste without that other “taste” I keep getting… I don’t want to sound like I’m complaining, because it’s still good! Just a little off. Any suggestions? Should I switch to all-grain soon? haha. Thanks!
