Can't I just get a shot to clear this up? Will antibiotics work???

Next Saturday, I'll be brewing a couple batches. (with healthy yeast!)

I'm curious about this, what exactly would the cucumbers do?

I think suds was saying that the beer had become vinegar.

Update: I took a hydrometer sample yesterday. The beer is down to 1.030 and it's bubbling. I tasted the sample, and while it's still kinda funky, it's not nearly as vinegary as the last time I sampled it. My wife tasted it, and said I should stick with it. She said that it wasn't too bad, and the batch is for her. So I'm going to make the spice tea (boiled), put it in the beer when fermentation is complete, and see how it tastes at bottling time.

I guess I need to change my sig again....
