So I'm slightly new to brewing and I'm probably about to ask a dumb question, but I need some help since I don't want to dump a full batch down the drain.
I just finished up a Vanilla Porter and think I may have picked up a bacterial contamination. I can't pick out the exact off flavor, but I just know the beer doesn't taste right. I fully sanitized all of my equipment, as well as the Vanilla beans that went into the secondary, so I'm not sure what could have caused it.
I was just curious as to whether or not there was any way of correcting a bacterial infection after the beer was bottled. Like I said, it's more than likely a dumb question, but I needed to get a good answer before I dumped the batch.
Any help would be great.
