Just one for me. I didn't properly supervise a helper who cleaned the bottling bucket after a bottling session. I assumed it was properly cleaned when I used it next time but it had an infection in the spigot that didn't get cleaned and it messed up a batch. From that point on I always disassemble my spigot and keep it separate from the bucket during storage and to make sure all surfaces are cleaned.

Knock on wood, I've only had a single bottle go south on me so far. Must have missed some crud in the bottom. Bummer to, it was the last bottle of a realy nice pale ale.

Portions of one batch way back in '93 or '94. The thing is it wasn't even a beer I wanted to brew, but a "Mexican Cerveza" I brewed for a friend. Maybe I wasn't as careful with it since it wasn't something I wanted to even do.

0 for over 400. Now I have had one that came out undrinkable, but I think that was my fault with the recipe.

Never had an infection, probably done close to 40 batches by now. ... I need to count em up before it's too late.

Fermenting beer in a pumpkin = mold in pumpkin = infection

My last one I thought was infected (strong smell weird alcohol taste) but I took it to the LHBS and they smelled it and said it got too hot and it went fusel. I never saw mold or anything that looked bad but the smell was pretty off.
