I really don't have any experience with this seeing as I haven't even racked my 6 month Flanders Red yet but when I do I plan on purchasing anything new that is plastic that would come in contact with it. Any tubing, racking cane, beer thief and especially the bottling bucket. That one seems like it's the biggest piece of equipment so has the most chance of getting infected.

These bugs are tougher to get ride of than your normal bacteria/wild yeast.

I know this is an old thread, but I am hoping to get a reply anyway. I have a wine thief that I have used to sample a souring stout from a bourbon barrel that I have. No problem so far, as I keep my sour stuff separate from my clean stuff. However, somehow (whether in a drunken stupor or someone else did it unknowingly) it got stored in my clean bottling bucket with my clean bottling lines and what not. Do I need to replace everything yet again just in case or are the chances of infection just from being in the same general vicinity low? If I just use a strong bleach solution before normal sanitation processes will that probably take care of the issue?

The only problem I had was in my bottles. I had to toss a few because I couldn't get them visibly clean after spending a year in the bottle.
Today I listened to a woman explaining to her young daughter that Sully is not a sequel to Monsters Inc.
