Hi all, Can someone help me with my second brew please? I've just finished an Evil Dog IPA which I had a few bottles of last weekend. Whilst it's ok it still has a slightly plasticky homebrew aftertaste. First question is what could have caused this? I've currently got a youngs American IPA on the go in the FV. Initial Gravity was 1059 and after 12 days it's currently at 1010. However I did have some issues with the Krauzen going into the Airlock so made a slight modification (see below images) I've just tested gravity 12 days in and its 1010 but still very cloudy and very bitter (although the bitterness is fine) I did initially use boiled water in my modified airlock but found a small dead fly so replaced with vodka. The airlock was only out for a matter of seconds. Do you think this is likely to have caused infection? I have yet to add the hops. Thanks in advance.
