Who doesn't check their beer for 2 days when it is in the primary? Sounds like the kind of mistake you only make once.

I don't, usually.

I brew, seal it, and walk away. I come back 14+ days later, rack it to a keg, seal it, and walk away. I also quit using hydrometers though. :3

I've only had my Mint Julep ale pop its top, and I just popped it back on when I noticed. I doubt it'll pick up anything inside of a cabinet.

smells kinda metalic... stale... spoiled milk

which is odd, cause none of those are related smells!

Whoa, weird. You ain't kidding! I'm not great w/ identifying, so maybe someone else will jump in and say "Oh I recognize that!" but if I had to guess (just off the sour milk) it could be Lacto...

No verdict on my Julep... going to crack the lid this evening and figure out what I'm doing re: dryhopping, etc., and if it "made it" without infection. More to come.

I've read that some sour worts smell like spoiled milk due to the infection.

Maybe you got a bacteria culture going?
