It was bound to happen but what now?

My 13th batch, yes 13, is infected. I transferred in to secondary about a month ago before vacation and came back to what looks like infection. At least I think so, there is a bunch of nasty...

Bourbon Nibs

Has anyone ever tried soaking Cocoa nibs in bourbon for a day before adding them to secondary? I'm going to try this unless I hear that it's a horrible idea, lol. Thanks.

Thanks for the feedback. I havn't done it yet. So should the oak be soaked in bourbon? A whole spiral is to much?
