This beer was bottled almost a week ago and before bottling I had sampled and aroma/flavor was what I was expecting. Last night to test the bottle carbonation, I popped one open and got a CO2 hiss and smoke. But the aroma was off, smelled like malted vinegar/sherry. The flavor was likewise.
I am thinking that it got infected with acetobactor, and the only thing that I changed for this bottling day was I had used re-used star san solution from last brew day, about 6 weeks ago to sanitize the bucket/siphon/bottling wand and caps. The bottles were sanitized in my dishwasher as usual.
The solution of recycled star-san was stored in a glass 1gal jug with a tight cap and was cloudy.
Any thoughts if this beer can ride it out be drinkable or should I dump and clean/sanitize the hell out of the bottles/bucket etc.?
