bottles cleaned in Sodium Percarbonate and then sanitised with Star san right before bottling. Caps soaked in starsan.

Do you wash the bottles with hot sodium percarbonate? If yes, do you also rinse them with hot water? If you wash with a hot solution you've got to rinse with hot water to remove the film coating the walls. This applies to your brew system as well.

If I were you I'd step right back and brew a simple bog standard recipe with normal hop levels using only filtered tap water to remove the chlorine (even if you do it on your old system to confirm your basics are okay). If it tastes okay at least you wont be pouring it down the drain. New systems can take a while to learn and adjust to, it's best building up to more challenging recipes a step at a time as its always quicker in the long run.

With so many of these systems being used these days maybe your local home brew store can hook you up with someone who can watch and help while you run through a brew.

Excellent question Fin!

I made 1 good batch once, pretty sure It was just extra though haha. Was a stone and wood but the flavour only stuck around about 1 week after bottle conditioning.

I've read on other forums that screw tops are OK to use. Just need to watch out cause some commercial bottles are made from thinner glass than home brew tallies.

Hey guys probably a stupid question but are the standard screw top glass big bottles right to use?Didn't realise they were all screw tops now.Cheers
