Usually after fermentation of about 3-4weeks, the beer that jus tap out taste good, but after some period of storage, the beer taste changed, become not nice.

This could be for many reasons

1) How r u priming them.... if your priming sugar is not sterile u could be infecting the bottles
2) Are you santising your bottled properly before filling ? Have you checked the lids ?
3) At what temperature are you storing them and are they away from sunlight ?

If the priming sugars are not sterile, the beer would taste "off" at the end of fermentation, wouldn't it?

rotijo mentioned that the beer tasted okay (at the end of fermentation) initially but deteriorated over time with further storage...

G'day Marcus.

"Priming" sugars are usually defined as those you add after fermentation to the bottles to provide carbonation of the beer. Therefore it follows that if they are added post fermentation that they could be the cause of any off flavours.
