    Yeah I syphon carefully and have a bottling friend. I'll be sure to blitz the hell out of it
    before any further use. At least if it tastes good going into the bottle I know I've sorted out
    the primary...

    Yeah I'm still torn between a glass carboy and getting a new bucket without a tap. I don't use
    the tap on my primary any more (I rack to a bottling bucket), so that would be a cheaper (yay)
    alternativ...

    ThickHead you make a valid point about that fermenter. I'm just a stingy guy haha. I maybe
    should do a ceremonial burning.In the UK we can't get hold of oxyclean very easily, I guess I
    can use a bleac...

    So is IO Star regarded as not being as good? Or is it purely down to preference? I think I will
    go for StarSan as it can't hurt to have more steriliser. With IO Star you need correct water Ph
    for it t...

    Yeah I am suspicious of the tap, not because of air getting in like someone suggested above,
    but definitely because soaking in bleach and turning it on/off over and over might not be
    enough. Especiall...

    Hmm yeah to me it must be either the fermenter or the tubing. Going to replace the tubing for
    my next batch and see if that works. Wouldn't have thought any germs/wild yeasts could survive
    a bleach so...

    Hmm never heard of the taps being an issue. It is actually a fermenter, just a small 15L one. I
    know plenty of people who use them and never have problems, and my old fermenter had a tap too,
    and that...

    Hi there,Just moved my latest brew to secondary, had a quick taste and I THINK it has a hint of
    sour/infection. Following on from a previous thread ( is the latest in a long line of
