Huh. Stout now doesn’t taste sour. Was the film not a pellicle? I suspect toothpaste threw my palate out of whack, too.

Still fretting about the stout that turned sour. Can’t do anything until I return home, trying to put it out of my mind for now.

Fined my tropical stout, plan being to keg after my trip this week. Pellicle on top, pulled a sample. Def infected. Crap.

Important safety tip: resist the temptation to taste the rum in which you’ve been infusing Scotch Bonnet peppers for a month.
