I decided that I needed to start sanitizing my jars/equipment and sanitized them with Star San (http://www.fivestarchemicals.com/wp-con ... ch-HB2.pdf).
My first ferment smelled and tasted different from previous ferments. Also, the color was a little lighter than usual, which hinted that something was going wrong. I used the same recipe practically every time.
Is my GBP permanently destroyed? How should I sanitize my equipment? Boiling at 170 degrees?
Thanks for your response!
