Could be any of your plastic an/or beer lines. Might be time for a bleachbomb or new
plastic.Are there any recommendations on how to do this (mix ratio, length of time, etc)? I can
invest in a new pri...

Sounds like a gusher infection, if the taste is ok. If the taste is off, then it's probably
lactbacillus.So is that an issue with not having everything properly sanitized?

I've been having a problem with some of my beers lately. After some time, they become over

Does the trub hurt it? I've never noticed a problem with mine when I've done this. I don't go
through multiple washing cycles like some do. I had someone tell me this is what they did, so I
tried it a...
