He tasted the beer but said he couldn't taste the dryer sheet flavor. I appreciate the gesture of a gift card refund, but will not be buying filters from them again. At this point, the only brand I have had good luck with is sold by Williams Brewing. I re-brewed the Helles and filtered it with new filter pads. This batch does not taste like dryer sheets. The off flavor in the original keg was still there six months later so I just dumped it.

I think your bad beers are on par with my good ones.

Have you tried my prison wine? ... coming soon to Benz Fest 2017!

I would imagine dryer sheets are quite a bit less expensive than AIH filter pads? ;)

I couldn't help it. Sorry.. it's been that sort of week. AIH is an interesting place to buy stuff from. What they are good for they are great, and the rest... well... not so much. They are, for example the only place I bought kegs from that didn't even rinse them out with a hose first. They state that, so do the other places, but the other places kegs were pretty clean, and in all cases I had multiple poppets be bad and leak, so in the end those were not as cheap as you'd think... usually their shipping makes buying from them a problem, too.
