Default Bacteria from the Yeast ?!

Hi there !

I used Bread Yeast for the 2nd time for brewing , but the Beer had a Vinegar smell at the end .

The Yeast is in a 500 Gramm Pack and after each use I keep it tightly closed in a Freezer Bag and put it in Refrigerator .

As I had sanitized everything carefully with Iodophor , is it possible that the Yeast carried the Bacteria to the Beer ?!

What process did you follow during your 2nd brewing attempt? Vinegar is produced with much oxidation.
