Only one. It was also the second beer in my only 2 brew day. I imagine I got lazy... plus it was only like my 3rd or 4th batch about 2 years ago.

I picked "1" to appease the beer gods.

And I'm hoisting a Stone IPA as a sacrifice to their goodwill.

But I'm on batch #49, and none have been infected (knock, knock).

The "1" I claimed was a yeast harvest that grew a skin of mold, though. Poured almost a liter of thick slurry down the drain. Thought (briefly) about skimming the mold and using it anyway, but decided it wasn't worth the risk. (Was just WLP001, easily replaced)

I have recently had a chronic infection problem at my taps. Beer is perfect all the way through and after fermentation. Once I get it on tap, I can taste the change in 5 days. Couple days after that I can't stomach it any more and dump it. Past 4 batches have been this way.

Recently I tore out all my lines, took apart my Perlicks, cleaned everything, kegs, , even my gas line. Put a beer on tap last week and sure enough 5 days later I have an infected beer. I am getting so despondent - I don't wanna quit brewing but this is just kicking my ass...


EDIT: omg this is a serious zombie thread... wtf was I thinking responding to a thread from a search result. LOL
