comment What is causing a bad flavor after cold conditioning?
thanks, that makes sense. I have cut off an inch of the dip tubes in my lagering kegs so I don't pick up that yeast and sediment when I transfer.

good idea, I might try a mini extract batch to see what I get. Though I think it would be sanitization issue not a sanitation issue :)

So I went ahead and got one from my homebrew store today and I was actually pretty impressed with my cheap digital thermometer matching the calibrated one exactly at freezing and boiling. I even did the altitude/barometric pressure adjustment and the boil temp was as expected.

So how do I test if it's accurate at the high end, and yeah I'm in denver so boiling is 10degrees lower? Also can you recommend a certified calibration thermometer, they seem to have a crazy price range?

I use a chest freezer with temperature controller, and usually for the first couple days of fermentations I set it 5 degrees lower than I want it to ferment at. I only have the sticker thermometers on the carboys, but I can usually keep those showing within a degree or two of where I want.

So I went ahead and checked my hydrometer also and it read 1.000 in 60 degree water. So, the bottle of beer in the attic, is that after it's been primed and carbonated or just straight out of primary? And would another gravity reading of that attic beer tell me also?

I have had some off flavors, but I thought they were just too dry, thin and harsh because of the final gravity.
