Hi guys, so i recently brewed a cornish style ale. Actually i did the same recipe twice in 2 months. Both times, brew day went fine. Trouble comes after fermentation.

I'm getting a big old waft and taste of almonds. First time, i went from kettle to no-chill cube, left it for 1 week before chucking it into a fermenter & pitch yeast

Second time, i went from kettle to no-chill cube, then into the fermenter the next day and pitch yeast.

Both times the wort smelt and tasted great before adding the yeast (safale s-04)

Yet both times i get this almond (benzaldehyde) aroma and taste.

Both times I allowed 3 weeks sat on the yeast, which is normally spot on for me to bottle.

Anyone know about almonds? Lol

Cheers 🍻
