Sorry your brew got infected, man. Sounds like your wort got infected with bacteria. I know my day is coming regardless of how clean I keep everything. Then I'll have to wait awhile to brew as my wife thinks my hobby is expensive.

Have a pumpkin in condition and a barley wine in secondary. I would rack it to tertiary, but it depends what the gravity is when I check it tonight. May go right to bottle.

Cheers!

IMHO, every beer is infected in very small amounts since we are not sterilizing. Just sanitizing. The key, and just my opinion is to not provide an environment that the small number of undesirables can grow. My guess is that this infection thrived on the oxygen that was allowed in the headspace of the fermenter.
