I'm a new brewer! Began with a Mangrove Jack US pale ale kit - which was fantastic. Couldn't believe how nice! So went straight to all grain BIAB efforts. Perhaps a bit quick.. So I've tried 2 recipes, both from James Morton's book. Totally Tropical Ale - which was a bit of an equipment disaster, (plus the wort chilled in a v cold bath which was a bit of a mare) and the second Undead Pale Ale (now with a wort chiller) though I pimped this recipe a little using some Amarillo on 2nd boil, and US-05 instead of Safale-04 (as I had some). I know this takes practice and I should just keep going but neither beers were good. Totally Tropical Ale I expected to be bad, the UnDead I can't see what went wrong. And I mentioned the first recipe only because similarish result - both cloudy (I know not nessarily a problem), on both the yeast took a few days to get going, both ABV's came in well below recipe and both have a yeasty almost soapy after taste. Drinkable, but NOTHING compared to the clarity of the original kit I did. Only thing I know is that I struggled with high temperatures (in the coolest room in my house) during fermentation because of hot weather. Was mostly 24/26, even when blanketed with cold wet towels. So apart from more practice (Was careful about keeping to recipe boil lengths and temperatures etc)/ probably not to pimp recipes (!), the temperature issue - any ideas on this sort of taste? All ingredients from the malt miller btw.
