    A yeasty aroma and/or flavor is usually caused by too much yeast in suspension. It is sometimes caused by the beer sitting on the yeast sediment too long after fermentation is complete.

    Corrective Action:

    Try using some finings to help settle out the yeast more effectively. Rack the beer off of the yeast sediment a few days after fermentation is complete to avoid yeast autolysis.
