Band Aid Brown

Postby Josh Lindsey » Tue Feb 15, 2011 6:21 pm

well, it happened again. This time I only bottled 2 gal. thankfully. It's only the bottles, so something is going wrong in my bottling system.

The sample I brought to the meeting was from the keg. I put three gallons in there and it is fine. Funny thing is, I primed the entire batch, bottled 2 gal, kegged the rest. So it wasn't the priming this time. The Band Aid is not as bad as with the stout but it is there. Maybe I can push it off on some friends late in the evening... :lol:

Bummer is I was gonna bring the case of 22's I bottled to my uncle's 70th birthday party (at the bottle, he can still keep up with us 40-somethings!).

Time to buy another keg.

Bring some to the next meeting!! Is it masochistic that I WANT to taste off flavors?? :?: :D
And if i get drunk well, I'll pass out
On the floor now baby
You won't bother me no more
And if you're drinkin' well, you know
That you're my friend and I say
I think I'll have myself a beer

I'm thinking now it's the dishwasher. The last two times I "sanitized" my bottles in the dishwasher, according to something I found online.

silly question.... but a) did you have the dishwasher set for 'sanitize' and b) you didnt put any detergent in did you?

I ask because I use my dishwasher to sanitize as well. My bottles are already clean before they go in , so they only need to be sanitized which the hot watter and steam do very nicely. I can imagine a regular cycle may not get AS hot or that any added detergent, or even detergent aid such as Jetwash (or whatever its called) could potentially be a culprit....

To me it looks and sounds like clorine . Id recommend filling a bucket with filtered water and using star San. Even a spray bottle with a solution is better than chlorinated steam. Try both methods . I do think that might be your problem though
