I am somewhat new to brewing (8 months), but I’ve noticed that both times I’ve used new kettles (The one that came with the kit and my new Anvil Foundry) the at least the first batches have had a metal after taste. It’s not the water cause I use distilled water. Is there a way to clean or condition so that doesn’t happen? I cleaned the foundry with dish soap, then Oxi Clean then Barkeepers Friend before my first batch so it wouldn’t do that. Only thing I can think of is I didn’t clean the chiller as diligent as the kettle.
Thanks for the advice.
