So.. a lot of my beers have had the rubber band taste to them.... I'm not sure where the infection is coming from.. I use star San before and after every use and pressure wash all the ports the same... not sure if it is my CW or something else... I clean everything I would think pretty good but I'm stumped... going to replace all my tubing and bleach/Pbw all the rest of my fermenting equipment? Anyone else have this problem and/or fixed it??? :x

Do a batch and use Campden tablets. Rubber band is likely chlorophenals from residual chlorine or chloramines. I back flush my chiller and run some PBW and Star San and have none of the issues you describe, starting from RO water.

That prob was it... started using a filter and cam tabs.. I use to get a few 5 gallon jugs of water from the store..
the "bad" batches were mostly from before that... but one was not... and the other batch was a fuck up (didn't put anything in the air lock).. I do think I probably need to clean my CW better.. so I'll see when my next batch is ready to rack...
thanks for the advice

I had a string of bad batches this summer and found it to be either the beer gods punishing me or choloramine from my local water supply. I choose to believe it was the water supply and have used campden tabs.....problem solved afterwards, so if you're having this issue I'd say mchrispen is on point.
