"I agree with Barry. In my fermenting room a bottle started leaking in a cardboard box and mould started as a result. I found some black spots growing on the inside thread of the fermenter lid but didnt get in and cause any off flavours in the beer."

Barry replied to dean fisher's discussion off flavours
"I'd be extremely doubtful that this is a result of mould spots on the wall. How exactly would they get into your fermenter to affect the fermenting beer? I'd look more at your vessels – the things in direct contact. What do you…"

"Cool, how long did you have the dry hops in for? Also how did the hops smell in the bag? The telltale signs for me are cheese + cardboard - if you smell any of either then the hops are no good."

oliver replied to dean fisher's discussion off flavours
"Looking back at your flavour descriptor: grassy/musty brings hops to mind. Did you use a decent amount of hops in any of these beers? If so did you dry hop and how long for and at what temp?"

Ralph replied to dean fisher's discussion off flavours
"Ah, sounds like you  have it sorted. Are you breaking down the plate chiller to clean it? Gladfields pale malt can tend to have a high pH when mashing - which may contribute to the change in flavour? Probably worth checking the pH of the mash…"

Ralph replied to dean fisher's discussion off flavours
"The only thing in common? Were you using the same fermentor? Could it be an infection somewhere in the fermentor that is not being cleaned out? If it is a plastic fermentor with a tap near the bottom then check that you are taking the tap…"

oliver replied to dean fisher's discussion off flavours
"Bugger, that's no good. How does the grain taste when you chew it? Is it nice and crunchy? What type of malt is it and long did you boil for and how fast did you cool?"
