Hi guys. Thanks for the replies. Yes professor, it looked identical to that pic you posted. And when I say raw vinegar, it literally smells and tastes like raw vinegar.
I actually have pondered tossing the fermenter and getting a new one, but, I will most likely clean the hell out of it and hope for the best. Well, I do that every time I brew!
Yeah Kenny it does suck. I knew when I was mixing the two together how bad I messed up. I was just crossing fingers and hoping for the best. I do plan on brewing again as soon as I possibly can.
Not sure how this could happen to be honest. When I brew, I normally soak my LBKs in oxyclean free for at least 2-3 hours in advance with a real good scrubbing with a soft cloth. Then I sanitize for around 30 minutes normally instead of the normal suggested 10 minutes. Then after all is said and done and I bottle, I clean the kegs real good and soak them with oxyclean free again. So they get washed two times and sanitized once real good per brew.
Oh well, better luck next time eh? Thanks for the input fellas. I appreciate it.
