Good news is that I got the free Kenmore freezer converted to a temperature controlled fermentor chamber, and have been able to keep brewing as the weather warms. The bad news is that a recent thunderstorm tripped the breaker feeding the AC supply, and I didn't notice for several days. I racked an ESB this past Sunday to secondary and took a sample. Well . . . Obviously the temperature got out of control (don't really know by how much) and I get an ever so slight, but still apparent banana ester. Since I've never had to deal with this before, I was wondering what if anything can be done to mask it?

Oh . . BTW, I used 1968 for fermentation.
