Hi guys, a few quick questions here. I recently had an infected batch of beer. I used a glass carboy for primary fermentation and then racked into a soda keg. Is there any special treatment I should be giving to equipment that has been exposed to a beer that has been infected (vinegar smell)? Will regular cleaning and sanitization of the equipment (PBW and Starsan) make everything fine?

Just clean it like a mofo and sanitize it like normal. As long as there are no hard to clean areas, like cracks, you should be fine.
