comment Bad “Canned Meat” smell after bottling, and briefly mid-fermentation
The first thing I suspected was DMS, but I've since ruled it out. The funny thing is the beer didn't smell bad or taste strange at all at bottling time. My best guess after talking to more people is I most likely had some infected tubing. I had never replaced it, only cleaned and sanitized. Maybe not enough, I guess.

comment Pilsner vs 2 Row
What's the difference in taste? That's what I'm after, mainly. Can you elaborate?

comment Pilsner vs 2 Row
I'm positive Pilsner is a kind of 2 Row. Just want to hear anyone's opinion on the differences...

Could hops cause this problem?

comment Bad “Canned Meat” smell after bottling, and briefly mid-fermentation
I haven't ever replaced my vinyl hoses. I use Starsan to sanitize them, clean them with hot water immediately before and after use. I dump my wort into the fermenter, so no plastic comes into contact until it hits the fermenter. I'm going to soak my fermenters in a strong bleach solution for a few days, then rinse thoroughly. I will also buy new tubing. Any other thoughts?
