On Saturday, I sampled the Water Valley Smoked APA. It was slightly smoky but okay. It had some character. I was pleased.
After dinner (pork chop, eggplant casserole and noodle salad) i got another beer and all I could taste was band aid.
If you recall, I said earlier that I tasted plastic. I wondered if it was the mesquite smoke. Now, I am not so sure.
When I bottled this, it tasted okay. Now I am afraid to find out what will happen at the Alamo City Cerveza Fest.
One last chance. I am brewing another Wolters West Texas Wheat tomorrow. If that has funky flavors, then I may have to rethink this whole brewing thing.
