Default Oooops!

so, made an alt.... fine, primary 2 months..... fine, racked into a better bottle to age for a while... (i ferment in 6G buckets, and use 5G as secondaries) put the better bottle in the corner.... next to a Flanders red (oops) apparently the infection jumped into the better bottle! i noticed a pelicle forming, so i quick racked it into a bucket to see if i could get it out from under. just checked... to say it didn't work would be an understatement!

so now, I have 2 sour autospyhons...

a 5G better bottle soaking in bleach-will this save it? do i chuck it?

I have a 6,.5 G bucket..... bleach wont help will it? its just storage now... right?

assuming the better bottle is salvage able, how long to bleach? ill get a new bung this weekend....

never use plastic for a sour beer AND a non sour beer. your just asking for trouble. like you got this time. use separate plastic containers for both styles of beer.

Time for a new better bottle, autosyphon, and bucket. Seriously, you need to get new plastic in my opinion. Others may disagree.
