A beer doesn't have to be completely infected for me to dump it. If a beer doesn't come out the way I want and I dont think I can drink it all/get rid of it to friends it goes down the drain.

Sounds like some pedio in the lines, I would swap those if you could. Other things to check are the QD's and maybe the regulator (if you've ever blown beer back in to the regulator that might be...

If you're going to do it I would do a 1L starter and pitch that bad Larry at high Krausen (our as close as you can). You won't get much growth but you'll prep the yeast for their new home. Cool thing...

You'll be fine just add more priming sugar when you go to bottle again. There should still be plenty of yeast to carb it up after your extra rest
