Dump it. Next time pack in a smaller container with beer on top. Store in the fridge as well.

If it smells bad, it most likely is.

Don't buy a co2 tank. Almost always more expensive than a deposit and you almost always hand over your shiny new one in exchange for the beat up full one.
I've changed to 10 gallon batches and my manual systems of batch sparging needs to go (I'm getting older & grayer everyday). I'm considering doing full volume mashes in my cooler, as most of my recipes will be well below its capacity, and using a pump to move the strike water from my keg/brew pot to the cooler. I use a false bottom in my cooler so can't crush as fine as BIAB. What hit (if any) can I expect on my efficiency doing a no sparge, full volume mash? I'm usually around 75% mash efficiency.
I am NOT a fan of fruit, spices, coffee, chocolate, etc. (including, now, vegetables--yuck) in my beer. If I want to taste grapefruit, I will eat a grapefruit, but please don't put it in my beer. It's not that I'm a grouchy old man clinging to a "back in my day" mentality, nor am I a Reinheitsgebot fanatic. And I keep an open mind when tasting beer. But I have never found a beer's flavor to be enhanced by adding this stuff to it. It just tastes really gross to me. And pumpkin beer? No thanks.
