Bitter flavor in my Milk Stout after Keg Conditioning

Hi all,

Long time homebrewer, first time posting here. I have noticed that quite of few of the homebrews that I try have a bitter taste that overshadows the entire beer.

Yesterday I taped a keg of my most recent brew, a clone of Bell’s Double Cream Stout (recipe from Brew Your Own Mag) and noticed that it had the bitter “homebrewed” taste as well. Interesting thing is, after a week of keg conditioning my brother was over and wanted to try the Stout, so we pulled a couple of pints off and it tasted great. It was quite flat, but it tasted great.

Does anyone know what I can do to prevent that bitter taste from developing during the last couple of weeks of keg conditioning?

Thanks for your help and efforts making drinking better beer possible!
