Definitely an infection. No way 001 brought that down to 1.002. Even if you mashed super low, I
doubt you'd get below 1.008. Underpitching gives any bacteria or wild yeast a better chance of

If it's really at 1.002, it's probably got some actual funk going on.

I used to make stuff, back in the day. I think I was active for about six years and then turned
the hobby into a job for a while when I was out of work, and it ruined it for me. I haven't
made a knife...

Pitch on the low end of the temp range. Once it's near fg, raise temp to 72 for a quicker
cleanup. Cold crash to 31. As soon as it hits 31, give it gelatin in the keg.For me, it tends
to be day 1-5 pr...

If they were sensitive enough for brewing to set them off, you'd be screwed if you had a 90f

Just dump the airlocks and refill with starsan. You're fine. Be careful not to pick it up if
it's a bucket. That might suck in the infected airlock liquid.

Acetaldehyde will get cleaned up by the yeast. Strong fruity esters will not.

underpitching WLP001. Give it time to clear up the acetaldehyde. Maybe consider raising the
temp to low 70'...
