Unfortunately, this batch became infected. This is why sanitizing all equipment that comes in contact with beer is crucial. As the brewery's brew pot is not big enough to boil a 10 gallon batch, the brewer was forced to brew this batch in two sessions. (only one mashing session was necessary) Somewhere between the two sessions, it became infected. A lot of work was poured down the drain. Learn from the brewer's mistake: clean,clean, clean!
