I brewed my first batch, an English IPA (Maris Otter, East Kent Goldings, WLP023 Burton Ale Yeast) about a month ago.
Bottled on the 4th November, priming with dextrose monohydrate brewing sugar.
All went to plan (or so I thought) but the beer has a distinct chlorine flavour (although the underlying beer flavour is OK).
I sterilised the bottles with Young's Brew Steriliser and Cleaner and for some stupid reason, didn't read the instructions regards rinsing thoroughly (everything I'd read up to this point had involved "StarSan" so I naively presumed rinsing was not required).
I'm not sure what flavour/s to associate with green beer (I've read many times not to dump a beer so early) so I could do with some reassurance that my suspicions are correct, and to put this down to experience and move on.
Does "green beer" taste like chlorine?
Spoke to supplier, the chap insisted Young's Sterliser/Cleaner is bleach/chlorine based, and it is not just Sodium Metabisulphite (although it may well be an ingredient) so rinse well!
